In addition, the group not only is terrorizing women and children, but according to a Fox News article, threatens other Islamic groups as well, such as Hamas, who fear for their territory in Gaza. Hamas is accusing and blaming ISIS of firing rockets and planting bombs in public buildings in the Gaza government; as well as blowing up a mosque.

In light of Hamas’ action we renew our allegiance to ISIS to strengthen his influence, to open up a war in Palestine in order to unite together in a war against the Jews,” said a group of supporters of the Islamic State in Jerusalem last month after the mosque attack.
