Israeli security forces arrest nine people suspected of working for Hamas

Israel Police and the Shin Bet arrested nine people from east Jerusalem over the past few weeks on suspicion of being involved with Hamas and working for the organization in Jerusalem, an Israel Police spokesperson reported on Monday.

The police investigation revealed that the suspects were allegedly in constant contact with Hamas and were being instructed and funded to carry out Hamas plans in Jerusalem.

"We again see how Hamas is in total control of east Jerusalem and the Temple Mount and its preparation for the day of attack," said Religious Zionist Party MK and Otzma Yehudit faction head Itamar Ben Gvir in response. 

"The alarm has been set, and I expect the prosecution to dish out indictments [against them.]"
