Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) and police investigators arrested two men in Jaljulya, southeast of Kfar Saba, suspected of being members or sympathizers of Islamic State, Sharon subdistrict police said on Wednesday.
Shin Bet officers searched a number of houses in Jaljulya looking for men believed to have violated the “illegal membership” law, for having links to the terrorist organization, police said.
In one of the houses they found “materials that support the operations of ISIS,” namely T-shirts with the Islamic State logo and slogans praising the organization, and writings seized on a computer.
One of the suspects is a 21-year-old man from Kafr Kasim and the other a 22-year-old man from Jaljulya. Both will appear at the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court for remand extensions on Thursday morning.
Over the past year there have been repeated cases of Israelis who have traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State or other groups fighting Syrian government forces.
There have also been a number of arrests of people believed to be identified with the group.
