Education Minister Naftali Bennett said Monday Israel will take the "toughest measures" against school teachers who were arrested for allegedly supporting the Islamic State terrorist organization.  

The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) revealed Monday that security forces arrested six Israeli Beduin men from the Negev town of Houra. Four of the suspects who worked as teachers at schools in the Negev used their positions to spread Islamic State propaganda among students and teachers, according to the Shin Bet.


"We have zero tolerance for anyone who harms our country," Bennett said in response to the arrests. "We will keep our education system clean, and we won't let anyone pollute our children."
