Cleared for publication: Three men were indicted Monday on several counts of conspiracy to commit an act of terror.
The three are accused of planning a shooting attack against IDF soldiers stationed in the Nablus area.
One of the detainees is Mohamed Abu Ali, 20, a resident of the Arab town of Qalansawe, who was granted Israeli residency by proxy of the Family Reunification Act.
The other two are Imam Kanoah, 26, a resident of Nur Shams with known ties to the Islamic Jihad, and Ibrahim Zahara, 29, a resident of the West Bank city of Tulkarem.
The investigation revealed that over the past month, Kanoah had given Abu Ali Islamic Jihad funds, which he used to by an M-16 rifle. The weapon was supposed to be used in a shooting attack against IDF soldiers in a military checkpoint in Nablus.
Abu Ali was indicted before the Petah Tikva District Court in charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, contact with a foreign agent, accepting and using terror funds and illegal possession of a firearm.
His case, the sources added, joined others with similar circumstances, in which individuals abused their residency status to Aid and abet acts of terror.
