Security forces have arrested six Israeli Beduin men from the Negev town of Houra, four of whom work as school teachers, for allegedly supporting the Islamic State terrorist organization.

The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) revealed Monday that the men were arrested over the past two months. They allegedly took part in secret meetings in which they discussed Islamic State doctrine, spread the group's propaganda among their family members and associates, and some of the suspects planned to join the ranks of the murderous group in Syria.

Some of the suspects who worked as teachers at schools in the Negev used their positions to spread Islamic State propaganda among students and teachers, according to the Shin Bet.
