An Israeli Air Force drone reportedly struck an Islamic Jihad rocket launcher in the Sinai Peninsula near the Israeli-Egyptian border, killing at least five suspected jihadists, Egyptian military sources told Palestinian news agency Ma'an on Friday.

The attack was reportedly in cooperation with the Egyptian authorities.

According to Ma'an, the Islamic Jihad terrorists were plotting to launch shoulder-fired missile at Israel.

Ma'an reported that a large explosion was heard on Friday afternoon in Rafah, near the Kerem Shalom border crossing.

An IDF spokesman said the army does not comment on reports in foreign media.
