EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Militant groups in Egypt's Sinai fired three rockets into Israel on Friday evening, an Egyptian security source said.
Egyptian forces witnessed militants fire three rockets across the border from al-Ajrah, a desert area south of Rafah, a security official told Ma'an.
Egyptian security forces cannot reach al-Ajrah because it is controlled by Jihadist groups, he added.
An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
