JERUSALEM, June 28 (UPI) -- Israeli security forces say they've arrested seven Israeli Arabs allegedly affiliated with al-Qaida and charged them with terrorist attacks including murder.
Shin Bet, the Israeli Security Agency, arrested the seven, all residents of Nazareth, between May 11 and June 21, the Jerusalem Post reported Monday.
Three of those arrested allegedly confessed to taking part in the killing of a taxi driver, Yafim Weinstein, in November 2009.
After the killing, Shin Bet said, two of the suspects attempted to travel to an al-Qaida training camp in Somalia but were stopped from entering the country at the Kenya border.
Three others planned to kidnap and kill a Nazareth resident, Shin Bet said, and threw stun grenades and fire bombs at Jewish-owned and Christian-owned businesses and homes in the town.
All seven of the men were indicted Monday at the Haifa district court, the Post reported.
