IDF spokesperson confirmed that two rockets were fired on Israel from Sinai on Sunday evening.

The foiled terrorist attempt in mid-day targeted checkpoints in Qawadis area in North Sinai province bordering Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip, said Egypt's military spokesman Tamer al-Refaay in the statement.

A group of gunmen - driving a vehicle and on motorbikes - opened fire on security personnel stationed outside a church in the North Sinai city of Al-Arish, a local security source, preferring anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to media, said.

Fifteen people were injured in the attack, officials added.

He added that five of these were residents of the building itself, while one of the deceased was a neighbour. They heard a blast and the 20-year-old building was reduced to a pile of rubble.

On Thursday, six other policemen were also killed in an attack by the terrorists in al-Arish. "They took weapons and ammunition as their bounty, while assisting units fired Grad rockets at the Al-Zahur army base and tried to thwart the Jewish planes flying overhead, hitting the Jewish Eshkol region with two Grad rockets".

Three policemen and two civilians were killed on Monday in North Sinai's Al-Arish after militants attacked security posts in the city, the Egyptian interior ministry said in a statement.

Almost 100 members of the Islamic State group have attacked Egyptian army officers at a security checkpoint in the North Sinai governorate, Reuters reported.
