The arrests were made by the Shin Bet and the Israel Police. The three suspected terrorists—Said Gasub Mahmoud Jabarin, 26, Faris Salah Mahmoud Mahajna, 24, and a 16-year-old minor—all come from the northern Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm, where the three Arab terrorists who perpetrated the July 14 Temple Mount terror attack also lived.\
The Shin Bet’s investigation revealed that Jabarin and the teen planned to carry out the shooting attack. Two firearms and ammunition they intended to use in the attack were turned over to Israeli security forces, and a rifle was also seized at Mahajna’s home.
Israeli security forces detained several other suspects from Umm al-Fahm for questioning “on suspicion of trafficking in war material,” according to the Shin Bet.
The Shin Bet said it “views Israelis who support the terrorist Islamic State organization, especially those who are in contact with its operatives and who work on its behalf inside the state of Israel, as a serious security threat.”
