ISIS terrorist group on Monday claimed responsibility for a knife attack in Tunisia the previous day which killed one National Guard officer and badly wounded another.
ISIS said its “fighters” carried out the attack in Sousse, in a statement carried by its propaganda arm Amaq on the Telegram messenger service.
On Sunday, the Tunisian National Guard said that attackers with knives killed a Tunisian National Guard officer and wounded another on Sunday before three assailants were shot dead in a firefight, labelling the incident a “terrorist attack.”
The attack took place in the tourist district of the coastal city of Sousse, the site of the worst of several extremist attacks in recent years, where 38 people, most of them Britons, were killed in a 2015 beachside shooting.
