On Monday, the official media outlet belonging to ISIS took responsibility for the terror attack in Hadera on Sunday that killed two Israeli Border Police officers.
As reported by the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (MEMRI-JTTM), a statement released by ISIS on Telegram said: “This is for the apostate Jews to know that our promises will always reach them, Allah willing.”
Along with the statement, ISIS media also released a viral video showing the attackers announcing a pledge of allegiance to the new ISIS caliph, Abu Al-Hassan Al-Hashimi Al-Qurashi, then stating: “We are coming to you with slaughter.”
Soon, the pro-ISIS Amaq News Agency reported that the Hadera terrorist attack came soon after another ISIS attack against Israeli civilians in the Beersheva terrorist attack on March 22. ISIS official media had not previously claimed responsibility for the Beersheva attack, according to MEMRI.
In response, Hamas released a statement praising the “heroic attack” as a “natural and legitimate response to the occupation and crimes of the Zionist enemy [Israel].”
