Arab Israeli arrested for trying to join IS

The police and Shin Bet announce the recent arrest of an Israeli citizen from the Arab town of Jaljulia for allegedly supporting Islamic State and planning to join the organization in Syria.

The suspect was a minor at the time the alleged offenses were committed.

Police say the arrest came after security forces received intelligence information indicating that the suspect intended to leave for Syria. The investigators found that the suspect recently became more religious, and began to make contact with IS fighters in Syria. He allegedly told the fighters that he wished to join the organization there.
