Hadera terrorists suspected of affiliation with Islamic State

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Security officials believe the two terrorists who killed two in Hadera tonight are affiliated with the Islamic State, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

A video circulating on social media earlier alleged to show the two terrorists embracing in front of an Islamic State flag before the attack. The video could not be independently verified, or confirmed to be the two gunmen.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, the gunmen are relatives of the Ighbariah family from Umm al-Fahm.
