The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) revealed on Tuesday that a terror cell consisting of members of an illegal Islamic movement in Israel was planning an attack against IDF soldiers.

A joint investigation in recent weeks by the Shin Bet and Israel Police discovered the involvement of members of the Islamic Movement in Israel (Northern Branch) in planning a terror attack against IDF soldiers in the Negev region.

The terror cell is said to consist of Israeli-Arab citizens and the investigation revealed that the attack was motivated by Israel's recent decision to declare the Islamic Movement of Israel an illegal organization.
