The Egyptian Army claims that 15 ISIS operative infiltrated into the Sinai over the weekend, but were captured.
Egypt has also claimed that ISIS terrorists have infiltrated into the Sinai from Gaza via the tunnels.
In an unrelated attack, four Egyptian policemen were killed in clashes with Jihadists in northern Sinai, on Saturday.
The Hamas terror organization is denying that ISIS is active in Gaza, despite ISIS flags being waved at the Gaza funeral of the two rocket terrorist killed in a targeted strike on Friday. The two terrorists were members of Al-Nasser Salah Al-Din Brigades, and the flags appear to link the organizations together.
Gaza’s Ministry of the Interior spokesman Iyad Al-Bezem said the only organizations [terrorists] active in Gaza are Palestinian organizations [terrorists] and not ISIS, according to an NRG report.
When terrorists are killed, their compatriots use that opportunity to wave the organization’s flags at the funeral to show which organization’s members were martyred fighting Israel.
The presence of ISIS in Gaza puts pressure on Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which until now were the leading terrorist organizations active in Gaza, after kicking out Fatah.
