Another Israeli Arab is supected of providing information to the Hizbullah. Jamal Abu-Salah, a northern Galilee resident, was indicted on Tuesday in the Haifa District Court. The charges against him include transferring information to the enemy and illegally entering Lebanon. Abu-Salah, a 24-year-old living in the village of Ein Al-Asad, crossed the Lebanese border in February 2005 via the village of Ghajar, claiming he was going to visit a relative. Upon his arrival in Beirut, he displayed his Israeli passport and was immediately transferred to a Hizbullah detention facility. He remained at the facility for 10 months, during which he relayed information on the location of several IDF bases, his village and the surrounding area. He also discussed his relatives employed by the Israel Prison Service. Upon his return to Israel, Abu-Salah allegedly continued to relay information to the Hizbullah. After his arrest by security forces, he was sent for psychiatric evaluation at Mizra Hospital, north of Acre, where he was found fit to stand trial. One month ago, a Galilee resident and escaped convict was arrested for divulging information to the Hizbullah. He was held in a Hizbullah prison for eight months and gave the terror group information on the locations of IDF bases, details of Nahariya's power and phone grids, and other information about the town's main buildings.
