Police thwarted ISIS terror attack in Jerusalem – WATCH
The Israeli Police released footage on Wednesday of the arrest of two east Jerusalem resident who have been indicted on terrorism charges after they allegedly planned terrorist attacks on military and civilian targets on behalf of the Islamic State terrorist group in Jerusalem on Independence Day.
The two east Jerusalem residents from the neighborhood of Jebel Mukaber, 21-year-old Ahmed Jabbis and 19-year-old Basel Abidat, were arrested based on concrete intelligence as part of a planned raid.
“On the night of October 28, 2019, dozens of Border Police officers raided two houses simultaneously in the village of Jebel Mukaber,” said an undercover border police officer who oversaw the operation. “This was a planned operation, we had information about the location of the accused and as soon as conditions allowed, we detained them.”
The two were indicted in a Jerusalem court on Sunday.
According to the indictment, the two were active on ISIS-affiliated websites beginning in 2016, which spread the group’s religious and political messages as well as provide instructions on how to assemble bombs to carry out attacks.
NATO says terrorism remains ‘persistent threat’
NATO on Wednesday said “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations remains a persistent threat to us all.”
The alliance reaffirmed “our solemn commitment as enshrined in Article 5 of the Washington Treaty that an attack against one Ally shall be considered an attack against us all,” referring to NATO’s founding document.
The remarks came as part of the final declaration of this week’s NATO 70th anniversary summit held in London.
The alliance said the summit was held “to celebrate seventy years of the strongest and most successful Alliance in history, and mark the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain.”
The declaration said NATO “guarantees the security of our territory and our one billion citizens, our freedom, and the values we share, including democracy, individual liberty, human rights, and the rule of law.”
The document also mentioned the ongoing debate over boosting defense investment, investing in new capabilities, and contributing more forces to NATO missions and operations.
