- Two Arab Israelis Indicted for Plotting Terror Attacks on Behalf of Islamic State – Yoav Zitun
Amin Yassin, 22, and Ali Armush, 28, two Arab citizens of Israel from the northern town of Tamra who were arrested in July, were indicted Thursday for plotting terror attacks in the name of Islamic State. They are accused of conspiracy to commit murder, making contact with a foreign agent, and training for terrorist activity.
Armush had multiple videos documenting violent ISIS activities, how to prepare bombs and gun silencers, and how to fight in built-up areas. He also had how-to guides for assassination, abduction, producing poisons including ricin, chloroform and napalm production, and killing with a knife. The Israel Security Agency said the two supported Islamic State and saw themselves as its envoys as they worked to spread the terror group’s ideology to others. (Ynet News)
