Mourners in Gaza were seen carrying black flags of the bloody Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group at a funeral on Sunday for one of two terrorists Israel targeted in an airstrike on Friday, Israel’s Ma’ariv daily reported.

Analysts said this was the first such open sign of local support for the group (also known as the “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant”), which is engaged in fierce battles for control of Iraq, and in Syria, in order to create a unified Islamic caliphate.

Israeli and other western intelligence services have warned that the group’s influence is spreading and may have set down roots in the coastal enclave.

Israeli MK Michael Oren: Trump Administration ‘Spells End of Two-State Solution’

JNS.org - Member of Knesset Michael Oren (Kulanu), the deputy minister for diplomacy in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office and Israel’s...

The Israeli Air Force struck Osama Has”‹sumi, 29, and Mohammad Fatzih, 24, with a direct missile, as they traveled in a vehicle along the Gazan shore.

“”‹Militants, like Hassumi and Fatzih, attacking Israel from Gaza, are not safe, do not have immunity, and will not be free to plan, plot and operate,” IDF Spokesman Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner said on Friday.

“We will continue to strike the instigators and agitators with patience, determination and precision. Gaza rocket terrorism does not pay,” he said.

Defense Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon said in Friday that the IDF would foil “rocket fire on Israel or attempted attacks on our civilians or troops. We will hunt down those who carry out or plan [these attacks], like we did today.”

While it is unclear if either of the two were, in fact, directly backed by ISIS, the IDF said the two were behind volleys of rockets fired into Israel over the last two weeks, and belonged to the “Salah e-Din Brigades” of the Popular Front.

Meanwhile, Hamas, which controls the strip, “categorically denied Egyptian security claims that ISIS terrorists infiltrated Sinai through Gaza tunnels,” according to the al-Kassam website.

On Saturday, Iyad Bazam, a spokesman for the terror group, called the claims, “blatant lies,” and said they were “part of the ongoing Egyptian smear campaign against the Gaza Strip.”

On Saturday night, six rockets fired from Gaza struck Israel, with two hitting a populated building.

“Over the course of the weekend 12 rockets hit Israel and over the past two weeks 25 rockets hit Israel. Approximately 50 rockets were launched at Israel over the past two weeks,” the IDF said in a statement.

“In response to the rocket attacks that hit Israel earlier this evening and in order to prevent further attacks on Israeli civilians, an IAF aircraft targeted three terror activity sites and three concealed rocket launchers in the southern Gaza Strip, a weapon manufacturing site in the northern Gaza Strip and a terror activity site and weapon manufacturing site in the central Gaza Strip,” the statement read.

    • june watson

      If i was in Gaza i would leave the area of attack with my children. They come before any war,or group. Its what i am here for . As a mother i am here to protect my children from anyone that would put them in danger,hamas or anyone. Mothers in Gaza go

      • Mahmoud

        go where? are you aware of the crippling seige/blockade the gazan’s face; nor by land, air or sea can any citizen escape.

  • Fred

    I trust the new Islamist groups have Obama / Kerry’s approval to operate in Gaza. After all these Terorists ( sorry militants ) are benign Obama’s eyes. Israel should show restraint ( whatever it means in US lingo ).
    The only language a primitive bully understands is when something hits him back and he can’t recover. It no use pussy footing.

  • Edward Halper

    ISIS in Gaza–This would explain the recent escalation in attacks from Hamas: Vying with other Islamists for leadership among terrorists, they need to show themselves the most aggressively militant to retain support among Palestinians. If this is right, all the talk about “cycle of violence” and Israel’s actions provoking the recent round of violence is nonsense.

  • Islam has yet to wake up to the fact that those, like isis will impose their own interpretation of law upon all People’s! Freedom as Muslim’s recognise will dissipate into a vacuous rule governed by perjured bias and hatred! Muslim on Muslim! Sunni vs Shiite! Fatah, Hezbollah, Hamas all exposed to the same threat they would foist upon Israel!

  • Thank you Germany for the new Dolphin class subs with special tube borings for nuclear tipped cruise missles. We may need to dedicate a few of those nuclear tipped cruise missles for the caliphate.

  • Michael Fox

    That will teach those Jew;s to mess with us…
    Hey Mohammad, do you hear a whistling noise?
    Yes Osama, maybe it,s my car’s radiator or…

    BOOM BABY!!!

    • What sort of person are You!! 3 Young Men are Murdered because they are Jews. Revenge takes the life of an Innocent Arab lad! We need sound thought and rational ideas?

  • Jose Milthon DeQuevedo

    Yisrael deve Caçar estes Bandidos sem Tregua!

    BHO will probably give them political asylum in the US, should they require it 🙂

    And who have the support of me and every other freedom loving patriot in America.

    It’s too bad that Britain (and America) is in self-destruct mode. Allowing pro-terrorists to have a picnic in a public park flying the terrorists ISIS flags and wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the ISIS emblems. “Treason” and “Sedition” no longer mean anything in America and Britain where they are pissing all over the memory of Winston Churchill. I just got the final volume of William Manchester’s biography of Churchill. I’m practically in tears reading the Introduction and recalling that he had to fight then to wake up the useful idiots in the media and government to the Nazi threat. Exactly the same way we are today when it comes to Islam.

  • shosh

    Israel should retake Gaza and expel all its Arab inhabitants-period !

  • Bart A, Charta

    What a pity and missed opportunity !

    Here you have a procession of people and equipment who support (or are) ISIL/ISIS that are lined up like ducks in a shooting gallery, and not an IDF drone or helicopter in sight to pull the trigger.

  • Shimon Cohen

    Hi,

    I Resent the word “militants”, those are bloody terrorists, who fire at civilians and ready to kill Jews not matter if they are children women or just civilians.

  • Thank you , Rafael Industries of Israel for inventing the Spice 250 missile platform that seems to have 100% effectiveness getting the terrorists while at the same time reducing collateral injuries of civilians.

  • David

    Good riddance to bad rubbish

  • carol

    I agree with Andrew.

    Thanks for the good news video clip. Would love to see many more just like it.

  • shloime

    a flag is just a piece of fabric, but hamas doesn’t like other group’s flags, so the real question is: what do the flags mean? are the local people disenchanted with hamas, or is hamas trying to puff itself up to appear larger and more credible than it really is?

  • judithg

    that whole gaza strip is like monsters university except not cute. broom them out for goodness sake. once and for all.

  • Judy Silver-Shapiro

    ISRAEL MUST RETAKE GAZA.
    Then, EXPEL ALL muslim ‘palestinians’
    their state=TransJordan

  • THAT IS “YOUR SPICE MISSILE PLATFORMS”

  • Thank you Rafael Industries for you spice missile platforms and their 100% kill ratio!

  • Since BDS and assorted nasty, racist, anti-semitic ideologies support “Gaza” and their terrorist rulers, they are consequently collaborating with ISIS. (That’s what I think)

  • It does not matter the name of the group the behavior has been the same for 1400 years or longer.

  • Andrew

    More targets, aim for the flags.

    • Robert

      You are so right, I say do it while you have the chance.
