One person was killed in a drone strike in the northern Sinai in Egypt, Channel 2 reported Monday evening, citing Al Jazeera.
Two missiles from a drone were shot at a house and vehicle, killing one and injuring several others.
According to Channel 2 the IDF declined to comment.
In the same area the Egyptian army and armed men in the region were involved in an exchange of fire and earlier in the day the Egyptian army reportedly killed seven Islamic State (ISIS) members in the area.
According to the IDF, the projectile was launched from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. One person suffered from shock as the result of the strike, however no other injuries were reported.
Rocket alert sirens were activated in the area to warn of the incoming projectile attack. Residents in the area reported hearing blasts.
The IDF said security forces were sweeping the site of impact.
The attack came as Jews in Israel were preparing for the holiday of Passover, and shortly after the government decided to close its side of the Taba Border Crossing between Eilat and Egypt in light of concerns of terrorist attacks targeting tourists in the volatile Sinai region.
