Three Israeli Arabs indicted for pro-ISIS Temple Mt terror plot

Three followers of the Islamic State from the Arab town of Umm al-Fahm in central Israel were brought before the Haifa district court Thursday, Sept. 28, charged with plotting another terrorist attack on Temple Mount in Jerusalem, where two Israel security officers were murdered on July 14.  Said Jabarin, 28 and a minor aged 16 were accused of abetting the enemy in time of war, communication with a foreign agent and illegal arms offences. Faras Mahajna, 24, was charged with possession of illegal weapons and supporting ISIS. Jabarin and the minor planned to replicate the shooting attack on Temple Mount perpetrated on July 14 by three residents of the same town, Umm al Fahm. The guns and ammunition for the attack were found in a police search cached at Mahajna’s home. The Shin Beit security agency uncovered the pro-ISIS plot  in time to thwart a copycat attack.
