(PresidentialWire.com)- An ambulance service reported two suspected Arab shooters killed two people in Israel on Sunday.
The incident occurred just as the US secretary of state and three Arab foreign ministers arrived for a summit.
According to a statement issued on the group’s Telegram channel early Monday, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. The two Muslims killed two soldiers and injured ten others.
The terrorist act occurred a mere five days after an Arab-Israeli citizen attacked at least four people in Beersheba before being fatally shot by a bystander.
In this heinous attack, two men brandishing assault rifles opened fire on a major roadway in Hadera. Israeli television aired surveillance camera footage of the murders.
According to the Magen David Adom ambulance service, the assailants shot dead the two individuals. According to police and the ambulance service, the two gunmen were also shot and killed after carrying out their vicious and savage undertaking.
On Israel’s Kan television, national police spokesman Eli Levy expressed anguish but found a silver lining in the brutality. “Luckily, our officers managed to neutralize the assailants and prevent a bigger terrorist attack,” Levy said.
The foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Morocco, three nations that repaired relations with Israel in 2020, met in southern Israel for a conference, which US Secretary of State Antony Blinken attended.
Israeli security officials have warned of an uptick in attacks on Israelis in the run-up to the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins in April this year and has historically been a difficult season.
The Islamic State (ISIS) is gaining ground once more. Since the demise of its self-declared caliphate in 2019, the group has conducted its most significant and most violent attack to date. ISIS forces raided the Kurdish-run Ghwayran prison in northeast Syria on January 20th, one of the most extensive facilities hosting ISIS militants and the location of some of the group’s most renowned members.
According to Israel, Jordan’s King Abdullah will meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the occupied West Bank on Monday to soothe tensions before the Easter and Passover holidays.
