- 5 Arab Israelis Arrested for IS Support, Planning Terror Attacks– Judah Ari Gross
Israel has arrested five Israeli Arabs from Nazareth for supporting the Islamic State and preparing to carry out terror attacks, the Israel Security Agency announced Tuesday. The cell’s members, all from the same family, trained in the use of weapons ahead of planned attacks in Israel. Over the past year, they became more religious and expressed support of the Islamic State and jihad. Two rifles were confiscated in the arrests.
All told, at least 40 Israeli Arabs are believed to have joined the Islamic State in recent years. (Times of Israel)
