Two Israeli Arabs arrested on suspicion of planning attacks
By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
The Shin Bet security service has recently arrested two Israeli Arab youths suspected of planning al-Qaida inspired terror attacks against targets in Israel, a gag order lifted Thursday revealed.
The two suspects, 21-year-old economics student Akrameh Jurin and a 17-year-old high school student, are both residents of Jaljulya, a local council in central Israel east of Kfar Sava.
The two were arrested about six weeks ago. An indictment against them was submitted to the court on Thursday.
According to the Shin Bet, the two confessed during questioning to having planned a number of terror attacks, among them an attempt to stab and kidnap an Israel Defense Forces soldier and seize control of his weapon near the Kafr Qassem junction.
The two also confessed to planning to stab a guard at the entrance of an Israeli community, seize his weapon and carry out a shooting attack.
According to the Shin Bet, the suspects said they had built makeshift explosive devices.
The Shin Bet added that the two men regularly visited world Jihad internet websites and watched lectures given by al-Qaida linked sheiks. Under their influence, Jurin decided that he wanted to carry out a terror attack against IDF soldiers. The economics student's father found out that his son was visiting Jihad internet sites and warned him against taking action.
Sources at the Shin Bet said this incident demonstrates the penetration power of extremist Jihad ideas, which are mainly available online. The parents were aware of their son's activity, and this awareness is vital in efforts to prevent the dangers of exposure to extremist material, sources said.
