Israel: ISIS-Linked Terrorists Kill Two Policemen, Injure Several Others

Israel: ISIS-Linked Terrorists Kill Two Policemen, Injure Several Others

ISIS attack coincides with 20th anniversary of ‘Passover Massacre’ which killed 30 Israelis.

Islamic States terrorists killed two policemen and wounded several others in the northern Israeli city of Hadera on Sunday. The two terrorists were taken down by an Israeli special forces unit patrolling nearby.

The terrorists, two cousins from a nearby Arab town, were affiliated with the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group. “Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on its Telegram account,” Reuters reported.

The victims were identified as Border Police officers Yezen Falah and Shirel Abukarat, both aged 19.

This is the second ISIS-linked attack in Israel in recent days. On Tuesday, a convicted ISIS member killed four Israelis, including women and the elderly, and injured several others in a car-ramming and stabbing attack in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba.

Sunday’s attack in Hadera coincides with the 20th anniversary of the ‘Passover Massacre‘ carried out by the Islamic terrorist group Hamas. Thirty people were killed and 120 injured in the suicide bombing by Hamas’ Iz a Din al-Kassam Brigades members. The Park Hotel in Netanya, where the 2002 bombing took place, is only 12 miles from the site of the latest ISIS attack.

The Israeli news website YnetNews reported the details of the terror attack and its link to ISIS:

Ibrahim and Ayman Agbarriya — two cousins from the Arab town of Umm al-Fahm, just miles away from the scene of the attack — arrived in the northern city by car, carrying at least three pistols, several knives, and over 1,100 rounds of ammunition with them.

They went on a deadly shooting spree that only ended a few solid minutes later when several special forces police officers who were dining at a nearby restaurant heard the shots, ran to the scene and opened fire at the terrorists who were lurking behind a bus.

One of the terrorists — Ibrahim — was arrested and convicted in 2016 for trying to join the Islamic State during the group’s heyday when it ruled large chunks of Syria and Iraq.

In his investigation, the then-23-year-old said that he got radicalized by watching videos of the group published online and began sympathizing with its ideology. He decided to travel to Syria and join its ranks.

These Islamist terror attacks come as Israeli security forces prepare for a spike in terrorism and violence during the upcoming period of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting. On Sunday, the Times of Israel noted that “officials had been warning of a flare-up of violence before and during the holy month of Ramadan, which begins later this week.”

The last year’s Ramadan saw widespread Palestinian rioting and violent street attacks on Jews across Israel. The 2021 Ramadan rioting was followed by massive Hamas rocket fire on Israeli towns and cities.

Are they going to fight back as a country now?

We were told by some on here that Bennett would be stronger than Bibi against this garbage.

Obama’s legacy from Tripoli to Kiev.

The day 2 Jews are killed by ISLAMIC fundamentalists, the Secretary of State of the United States (a former Jew) issued a statement about “settler violence.” Not a word about Islamic terrorists.

    1. Only one Jew killed in this attack. Police Officer Yezen Falah was not a Jew.

    2. There’s no such thing as a “former Jew”. If his mother was a Jew he’s a Jew.

      You know and I know, you don’t have to be a Jew to be an Israeli. Israeli citizens can serve in the IDF. As it stands, They can be supreme court justices. The draft only applies to Jews.

      The Christian Arabs want to make the draft apply to them.

      On the first point I made an error. On the second point you are focusing on literal meaning when the author (me) was intending something different–a figurative meaning–to make a point. You are smart and knowledgeable, Milhouse. But you need to think about what someone means. On the other hand, if you’d like to discuss the Halachah, I would be happy to. I am no expert, however. And I’m located in Israel, having left the US a few years ago because of the growing and rampant leftist anti-Semitism. So we’ll likely have to adjust for a significant time difference. The attack that killed Police Officer Yezen Falah occurred in Hadera, about 20 minutes from where I live.

I’m not usually a stickler for gender stuff like this, but Shirel Abukarat was a young woman only 19 years of age.

The titling should read as “Police Officers”.

There’s a fix for this. Bomb Gaza to rubble, napalm the rubble.

    Gaza has nothing to do with this. If Gaza didn’t exist this attack would have proceeded exactly the same way.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | March 28, 2022 at 10:45 pm

      Gaza doesn’t exist. Name a country called Gaza.

        Milhouse in reply to Arminius. | March 29, 2022 at 2:07 am

        Nobody said it was a country. But it certainly exists. It’s existed since Biblical times.

          The north bank of the Rio Grande existed before there were people to write about either one. What’s your point?

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | March 30, 2022 at 2:22 am

          My point is obvious. I already wrote it above. My reply to mbecker98 was crystal clear. You are the one who made a bizarre objection and then posted a bunch of irrelevant garbage.

Gaza doesn’t exist. Name a country called Gaza. There maybe was a Turkish territory called Gaza. But it wasn’t a country,

The last country that had legal title to the land that was called Israel was Turkey. They gave it up when they lost WWI.

I really don’t want to hear about it.

I really don’t want to hear about it.

“We’ll fight them both, they’ll sink us – and that will be that. Goodbye.” – 60 year old Captain Edward Kennedy as he turned his converted liner to fight the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau.

Captain Kennedy, saying goodby.

A converted liner was a merchant cruiser. Unarmored merchant cruiser.

Arm0red. My bad.

I have no idea what that says.
