The attack on the Tunisian Bardo Museum was carried out by Yasin Obeidi and Jaber Al-Khashnawi while ISIS provides the names as Mahdi Al-Yahawi and Jaber Al-Khashnawi, members of Uqba bin Nafi terrorist organization that recently gave allegiance to ISIS. One of them, Al-Khashnawi was reported to have disappeared for three months calling from a cellphone from Iraq. His father reported him missing to the police and now he surfaced dead after committing the attack.
The attack claimed the lives of 20 Christian tourists, Polish, Italian, German and Spanish and a Muslim, one Tunisian named Ayman Marjan from the police unit to combat terrorism including a K9 dog.
They were lone wolves, a title given to terrorists who embrace the ISIS doctrine but do not belong to them organizationally.
The type of terrorist is called Inghimasi. In the terrorism business there are two type. Istishhadi (suicidal by blowing self up) and Inghimashi, a well trained who carries explosives and light arms, he fights until he runs out of ammunition.
Al-Hadath, a middle east news source reported and ISIS affiliates tweeted the news as killing “crusaders” (Christians). While the media says “tourists”, this is true, but ISIS calls them “crusader Christians”. ISIS does not target a tourist because he/she is a tourist as all their tweets show:

It is noteworthy that a battalion of Okba Ibn Nafi partnering with Ansar al-Sharia in Tunisia, pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of ISIS and threatened earlier to carry out attacks against the ruling regime in Tunisia, also claimed responsibility for the assassination of Chokri Belaid opposition leader Tunisia, last year.
