ISIS Attack Kills Two And Injures Half Dozen In Israel During Historic Arab And Israeli Summit

U.S. Condemns Terrorist Attack

The timing of the attack is significant.

At the time, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, Egypt, Israel and the United States were holding an historic summit to discuss Arab-Israeli security matters. 

The Jerusalem Post reports that the attackers who acted in the name of the ISIS terrorist group were Arab-Israelis. 

Both of the individuals who were killed were members of the Border Police. 

The Jerusalem Post also reports that the killers swore allegiance to ISIS in Facebook posts before the attack, and that ISIS took credit for the attack.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken immediately condemned the act of terrorism:

CNN reported, “The two assailants, who were shot and killed by Israeli police, were from the Arab-majority Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm in the northern district of Haifa. An Israeli police spokesperson said the operatives fired at local police in Hadera, killing two passers-by. Police said the victims were members of the border police force.”

More than just one suspected ISIS attack

“A short while ago, two terrorists arrived on Herbert Samuel Street in Hadera and began firing at a local police force. As a result of the shooting, the deaths of 2 passers-by were determined,” the spokesperson said. “An undercover force that was at the scene sought contact and after a brief gun battle neutralized the terrorists,” the spokesperson added.

Earlier in the week, an Arab-Israeli assailant stabbed and killed four people in Israel’s southern city of Beersheba. A civilian shot and killed that attacker, who had been arrested in the past for supporting ISIS.

The Jerusalem Post also reports that, while nobody knows who many Arab citizens of Israel are members of ISIS, Arab-Israeli leaders called the incidents “isolated” and said they are not supported by the population.
