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.

 

Defense sources stressed that Abu Ali's activities were enabled, among other things, by the special residency statue he had, which enabled him to travel between Israel and the West Bank freely.

 

His case, the sources added, joined others with similar circumstances, in which individuals abused their residency status to Aid and abet acts of terror.
