Two Israeli border police officers, Yazan Fallah, 19, from Kasra Samia, and Shirel Aboukaret, 19, from Netanya, were killed and twelve people were injured in a shooting attack in Hadera on Sunday evening. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on Telegram, Reuters reported.
The attackers waited for a bus to drive by before shooting towards civilians.
Two Israeli men in their 20s were seriously injured in the attack, while a 45-year-old man and an Israeli woman in her 20s were lightly injured. They were rushed to Hillel Yafe Medical Center in the city for further treatment.
At the scene of the shooting, two additional civilians were treated by paramedics. Five passersby were also evacuated to Hillel Yafe Medical Center after showing signs of post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD).
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrived at the scene where the shooters, two Arab-Israeli men from Umm el-Fahm, were shot dead by undercover officers from Border Police’s Counterterrorism Unit, who were eating at a restaurant near the scene of the attack.
