An approximately twenty-year-old resident of Qalansuwa, in the Wadi Ara region of central Israel, was charged Monday with planning a shooting attack against IDF soldiers near Nablus.

A Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) investigation revealed that the suspect, Muhammed Abu Ali, is originally from Tul Karem in the West Bank, but was granted Israeli residency as part of the Family Reunification Act.

Abu Ali used his Israeli residency to shuttle between Israel and the West Bank in order to aid three members of an Islamic Jihad terror cell to plan the terror attack against IDF soldiers.
