Israeli Arab Indicted for Aiding Temple Mount Attackers

(Ha'aretz) Noa Shpigel and Gili Cohen - Amjad Jabareen, a resident of Umm Al-Fahm in northern Israel, helped the three attackers from the same town who murdered two Israeli police officers on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in July. According to an indictment filed Thursday, Jabareen helped them plan the attack, hide weapons in a local mosque, and drove them to the bus that took them to Jerusalem. In preparation for the attack, the three terrorists practiced shooting near Umm Al-Fahm with Jabareen's help. He also drove them to the site and witnessed them checking out the security cameras. The Israel Security Agency noted that the submachine guns used for the attack were hidden in a closet in the Al-Malasaa Mosque in Umm Al-Fahm, where one of the attackers worked. The mosque is associated with the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement which was outlawed in 2015.
