The Northern District Attorney's Office on Thursday filed indictments with the Nazareth District Court against seven Israeli-Arabs for founding an Islamic State cell to carry out a terror attack on Israel.

The indictment stated that the defendants illegally purchased weapons, made contact with ISIS agents in Syria and started to plan a shooting attack in the Emek Valley.

One of the defendants, Ahmed Ahmad, 26, is already serving a life prison sentence for his involvement in the murder of taxi driver Yafim Weinstein in 2009.

Three more defendants were accused of the most serious crimes and were named as Mahmoud Ihaav Sarif of Nazareth, Ahmad Omer of Hagana and Muhammad Hamad Gazal of Yafia.

Besides those four, the other three defendants were accused of conspiracy to commit a felony and the weapons related crimes.
