Two Israeli Arabs charged with planning IS-inspired attacks

149 Days ago

Jerusalem, March 4 (IANS) Two Israeli Arabs were indicted on Thursday with supporting the Islamic State (IS) and planning to carry out attacks against security forces on behalf of the militant group.

A statement by the Shin Bet security service said that Bahaa Eldin Ziad Hasan Masarwa, 19, and Ahmad Nabil Ahmad, 21, were arrested in a joint operation by the Shin Bet and the police earlier this year, Xinhua reported.

Both are Israeli citizens and residents of the northern Nazareth region.

An indictment filed on Thursday in the Nazareth District Court accused them of "conspiring to assist the enemy during war."

Masarwa was also indicted with contacting a "foreign agent" and supporting a terror organisation.

During their interrogation, the pair said they were inspired by the IS, the Shin Bet said. They planned to perpetrate shooting attacks against soldiers or police in the northern city of Afula and the Jalamea Crossing, west of Jenin, said the Shin Bet.

They also allegedly collected money to buy a rifle for the attacks. (IANS)
