In 2007, Nafa visited Syria, even though the Israeli Interior Ministry had not approved the trip. In Syria, he met with Talal Naji, the deputy secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command terror group.

Nafa, 61, is from the Druze village of Beit Jann in northern Israel.
