An American fugitive who took up residence in Palestinian-controlled cities in the West Bank and who allegedly came into possession of arms in order to carry out terrorist attacks against Islamic holy sites in Israel was arrested last month by local Israeli authorities, officials said on Tuesday.

Adam Everett Livvix, a native of Texas who is wanted in the United States for questioning on drug-related charges, was apprehended by Israeli authorities on November 19.

According to police, Livvix entered Israel last year while on the run from US law enforcement. He moved to Palestinian-controlled areas in Bethlehem and Hebron, where he encountered a Palestinian operative who gauged Livvix’s interest in attempting to assassinate US President Barack Obama during his visit to the region last year.

Livvix, who was allegedly offered sniper rifles to carry out the assassination, refused the offer, according to police.
