The Israel Defense Forces releases an image showing the cover of an “Al-Qaeda/Islamic State training and inspiration booklet” found on the body of a Palestinian terrorist who infiltrated into Israel during Saturday’s attack.

Israeli officials have repeatedly linked Hamas to IS in the aftermath of the attack, though the comparison is mainly seen as an attempt to explain the enormity of the atrocities and level of depravity as Israel rallies support for its counterattack on the Gaza-based group.
