Islamic State claims responsibility for attack in Israel that killed two police officers
The Islamic State claimed responsibility for an attack that killed two police officers in Israel on Sunday.
Two gunmen in Hadera, which is roughly 30 miles north of Tel Aviv, carried out the attack. They were both sympathizers of the Islamic State, Reutersreported, citing security officials.
Security footage showed two men with assault rifles open fired on a main street in Hadera, the news service added.
"Luckily, our officers managed to neutralize the assailants and prevent a bigger terrorist attack," Eli Levy, a spokesperson for the national police, said on Israel's Kan television, according to Reuters.
