JNS.org – An Israeli-Arab man was indicted on Thursday for aiding the three Arab terrorists who killed two Israeli police officers July 14 near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The suspect, 35-year-old Amjad Muhammad Ahmad Jabarin from the northern Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm, was arrested July 23 and charged in the Haifa District Court with being an accessory to murder, the use of weapons, obstruction of justice and conspiring to commit a crime.

Israel’s Shin Bet security agency stated that the suspect transported the terrorists to Jerusalem, spoke with them about their plans and offered to assist them with “carrying out the attack.”

According to Jabarin’s indictment, he practiced shooting with the terrorists and assisted them with locating security cameras on the Temple Mount ahead of the attack. After the attack, Jabarin allegedly hid the terrorists’ belongings, including a cellphone and car keys.

Further, the Shin Bet’s investigation revealed that the terrorists met at the Al-Malsa Mosque in Umm al-Fahm, which is affiliated with the outlawed Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. The terrorists purportedly hid their weapons at the mosque before carrying out the attack.
