Jerusalem: Israel will not allow terrorists to guide its policies, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said on Monday in the wake of an attack in the northern Israeli city of Hadera. On Sunday, two gunmen opened fire at police officers in the city, killing two and injuring several others. According to The Guardian, the Islamic State terrorist group later claimed responsibility for the attack, marking the first time IS has officially claimed responsibility for an attack in Israel. “The terrorists’ goal is to frighten us, so that we stop meeting and building relations and agreements between us. They will fail, we will not allow them [to succeed]. We are not going to allow them to dictate our lives or define our policy,” Lapid said during the Negev summit with counterparts from the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Bahrain, as well as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The minister also mentioned that Palestinian armed groups such as Hamas had declared the Hadera attack a response to the summit. The historic two-day summit started on Sunday in Israel’s southern desert region of Negev. Israeli broadcaster KAN has reported that such meetings could become annual.
