Israel Prison Service officers foiled an attempt to smuggle SIM cards and cell phones to a terrorist jailed in the Ktzi'ot Prison in the Negev, using the prisoner's five-year-old son as an intermediary, according to Israeli media reports.

Officers noticed the boy moving suspiciously during a family visit to the prison.

A search of the child's body revealed that he held ten small, homemade cell phones and three SIM cards in his underwear.

The prisoner, a resident of the village of Yatta, is serving 12 years in prison for plotting to manufacture explosives and murder innocents.

The prisoner was isolated and an investigation has been opened.

Last month, indictments were filed against five people who worked to transfer cell phones, chargers, earphones, and other items to a jailed terrorist.

Israel Prison Service did not immediately respond to a Jerusalem Post request for comment.
