A man from the Beduin town of Tel Sheva has been indicted for allegedly conspiring with jihadi operatives from various Arab states to carry out terror attacks in Israel.

Israel Police said Monday that the suspect, a student in his 20s who also works as a substitute teacher at a school in Tel Sheva, was arrested on January 18 while returning to Israel from Jordan.

According to police, the suspect said in his interrogation that prior to leaving Israel for Jordan, he had conspired with the jihadis and agreed to help a jihadi from Tunisia to infiltrate into Israel and to carry out a terror attack in the country.

The suspect also agreed to join a Salafi jihadi group during this period, the police stated.

The Southern District State Attorney filed an indictment against him and requested that he be detained during the remainder of legal proceedings against him.
