ISIS released a photo Saturday of the Islamic State fighter who murdered 37 at a Tunisian resort on Friday.

Islamic group says 23 year-old ‘soldier of the caliphate Abu Yahya al-Qayrawani’ was behind the massacre.

The Times of Israel reported:

A photograph purporting to be that of the gunman who killed at least 37 people Friday on a beach resort in Tunisia was making the rounds on jihadist forums and jihadist accounts on Twitter on Saturday.

The Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for the attack, released the photograph and identified the man by his jihadi nom de guerre, Abu Yahya al-Qayrawani. According to Tunisian authorities, he was Seifiddine Rezgui, a 23-year-old electrical engineering student from Gaafour, in northwest Tunisia. He was a student at Kairouan University, a city just south of Sousse where the killings occurred.
