Raed Salah, the head of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, should be prosecuted on incitement and supporting terrorism, according to investigative material that the police transferred to the State Attorney's Office, on Thursday.

The police stated on Thursday that the investigation of Salah, which ended last week, was based on media reports and social media postings surrounding comments by Salah about the movement and his role in it.

Due to the Northern Branch's ties to Hamas and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood the Israeli government declared the northern branch of the Islamic Movement "an illegal organization," in November of 2015.
