It was cleared for publication today (Sunday) that the Shin Bet and Jerusalem District Police exposed an ISIS terror cell in East Jerusalem that planned to carry out terror attacks throughout the country. The terror cell members are all residents of the Shuafat refugee camp in East Jerusalem.

Indictments were filed against four of the terror cell members this morning at the Jerusalem District Court. Other indictments were filed this morning against two additional members at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.

The investigation indicated that the terror cell members were planning to carry out several serious and massive terror attacks throughout the country. Among other terror attacks, the members planned to abduct Israelis. According to one of the indictments, some of the members even traveled to Jordan and Egypt in order to join the murderous terrorist organization and receive training.

About a month ago, JOL reported that an Israeli court sentenced six Arab-Israelis to 2-6 years in prison for trying to establish an ISIS cell in Israel. The leader of the cell was an Arab-Israeli lawyer from Nazareth who worked as a public defender.
