The Tweet said the group “executed extensive, simultaneous attacks in the cities of El-Arish, Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah.”

According to Al Jazeera, the ISIS-affiliated fighters fired a barrage of rockets and set off a car bomb in.

A military base, a nearby police headquarters, a residential complex for army and police officers and an army checkpoint were targeted in El-Arish in the biggest such attack since October.

“Terrorist elements have attacked several police and army headquarters and facilities using explosive-laden vehicles and rockets, ” the military said.

“An exchange of fire is ongoing and the elements are being dealt with.”

Security officials said fighters first fired rockets at the El-Arish police headquarters and the military base, which was followed by the car bomb.
