ISIS has committed another terror attack which has killed 2 Americans. The suicide bombing took place at a popular shopping area in Istanbul and resulted in the deaths of at least 5 people and dozens more wounded.

The Turkish interior minister identified the bomber as a militant with ties to the ISIS, according to the Associated Press.

The blast targeted Istiklal Street, a major thoroughfare lined with international shopping outlets and restaurants that bustles with foreign tourists on weekends. Five people had been confirmed dead and at least 36 wounded, including 12 foreign nationals, Washington Post reports.

“The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s terrorist attack in Istanbul,” Ned Price, a National Security Council spokesman, said in a statement released by the White House. “Two American citizens were among those killed in this heinous attack. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of those killed, and we wish a speedy recovery to those injured.”

Price said that the United States remains steadfast in its support of Turkey and that the Obama administration is working with Turkish authorities. “These repeated acts of terrorism in Turkey must come to an end,” he said.

The two Americans killed were dual nationals and also held Israeli citizenship. Emmanuel Nahshon, a spokes­man for Israel’s Foreign Ministry, said one of the victims was a 60-year-old woman. The two were part of a group of 14 Israeli tourists on a culinary tour and had just finished eating breakfast. Eleven other Israelis were injured in the attack, some of them critically, Nahshon said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday night that Israel had decided to send two emergency planes with medical teams and supplies to Istanbul to help treat the wounded and fly them back to Israel.

“We are looking into the possibility that this terror attack was aimed at Israelis,” Netanyahu said at a news conference in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile Obama is in Cuba handing out millions of dollars…

Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and friends.

God Bless.
