JNS.org – Two Israeli Arabs from the Galilee region were indicted for supporting and planning to join the Islamic State terror group.

The two men, Nazareth resident Mahmoud Abed al-Fatah, 24, and Ashraf Arabi’i, 35, of Shfaram, were indicted in Nazareth District Court on Thursday.

According to the indictment against al-Fatah, he was an active supporter of the Islamic State for nearly two years until his arrest last month, where he regularly visited jihadist websites and Islamic State propaganda videos as well as made plans to join the terror group in Syria under the pretext of traveling to Turkey for his honeymoon.

Similarly, Arabi’i, who was indicted on illegal weapons possession, was also an active supporter of the Islamic State, where he had disseminated jihadist propaganda to others and was arranging to join the terror group in Syria as well.
