An Israeli Arab resident of Taiba arrested on suspicion of fighting with rebels in Syria against the regime of President Bashar Assad was denied release to house arrest on Thursday.

Twenty-nine- year-old Hichmat Masarwa, was arrested on March 19 by the Shin Bet and Israel Police upon returning from Turkey, after suspicions emerged that he had joined global jihadi groups in Syria and had tried to locate his brother, who traveled to Syria in recent months to fight with the rebels as well.

Yaakov Lappin and Yonah Jeremy Bob contributed to this report.
