ISIS’ shocking brutality reached a new level this week when it released a video showing a young boy, possibly 10 or 12 years old, shooting a man who the terrorist group claim was a captured Israeli spy. Israeli sources have not confirmed if the footage was authentic.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
• Israelis go to the polls next Tuesday, March 17, with incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holding a slim lead over challenger Isaac Herzog.
• Following Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech warning Congress of making a “bad deal” with Iran, a group of U.S. Congressmen have sent an “open letter” to Iranian leaders, saying any nuclear deal that Congress doesn’t approve will not be accepted.
• Last weekend, a Palestinian terrorist rammed his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Jerusalem, injuring five. The attack is the latest in a string of vehicular terror attacks which began last year.
• This week, Hamas said it intends to continue kidnapping IDF soldiers as part of its overall military strategy.
