An indictment was filed in the Nazareth District Court on Monday against two people accused of smuggling mobile telephones to security prisoners in order to promote acts of terror.

The indictment names 40-year-old Mohammed Taj from Tubas in the West Bank, who is serving time in the Ketziot Prison for crimes committed for the terror organization PLFP, of which he is a member.

The second defendant, East Jerusalem resident Ra'ania Halasseh, arranged with Taj to bribe a prison guard to smuggle cellphones into the prison, so that they could be used by security prisoners to promote terror acts and terror groups.

Unknown to Taj and Halasseh, the prison guard they 'bribed' was an undercover prison service agent.
