Two police officers were killed and several other civilians were wounded in a shooting attack in the northern city of Hadera on Sunday night, police and medics said.
The two terrorists, who committed the attack were believed to be supporters of the Islamic State. The shooting came days after a deadly terror attack in the southern city of Beersheba, which was also committed by a man who attempted to join the Jihadist group, raising concerns of further attacks inspired by the terrorist organization. Hebrew media widely identified the two terrorists as Ayman and Ibrahim Ighbariah, cousins whom police said were residents of the central Arab city of Umm al-Fahm

The Joint List denounces the deadly shooting attack in Hadera as a “shocking crime.” “There is and can be no justification for harming civilians. These acts have no connection to the political struggle that the Arab public is leading for its rights,” the parliamentary faction says in a statement. According to MK Ayman Odeh (Hadash), leader of the Joint List, the attack, “had nothing to do with the political struggle that the Arab public waged for their rights.”
