CAIRO (Reuters) - Sinai Province, Islamic State's Egypt affiliate, fired rockets on Tuesday at the direction of an airport in Sinai used by UN peacekeeping forces, security sources said, adding that there were no casualties reported.

The group claimed responsibility for the attack on several Twitter accounts linked to it.

Details of the attack were not immediately clear with some security sources saying the rockets fell inside the airport and others saying they fell outside.
