Yerushalayim Arabs Joined ISIS, Planned Yom Ha’Atzmaut Attacks


Two Arab residents of Yerushalayim were indicted Sunday on terror charges, after the pair joined the ISIS terror organization and allegedly planned terror attacks on military and civilian targets.

The two suspects charged in the indictment, 21-year-old Ahmed Jabbis and 19-year-old Basel Abidat, frequented websites affiliated with the ISIS terror organization from 2016 to 2019. The websites not only spread ISIS’ religious and political messages, but also provided instructions on how to assemble bombs and carry out terror attacks.

In September of 2019, the two suspects discussed plans to carry out terror attacks on an IDF base in the Jordan Valley, as well as against an event marking Yom Ha’Atzmaut at the Sultan’s Pool in Yerushalayim and another event at Safra Square in the capital.
