Three East Jerusalem residents are arrested on suspicion of having joined ISIS.

In a joint statement, the police and the Shin Bet report that the three men, all in their twenties, are residents of the Umm Tuba neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem.

Pro-ISIS materials and a large amount of cash were found during a police search of the homes of the three, who reportedly made contact with ISIS members abroad on social networks, pledged allegiance to the terror group, and were about to leave the country to join its ranks abroad.

The suspects have been in detention pending completion of the investigation, and the prosecutor’s office is expected to file charges against them in the coming days.
