BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli prosecutors from a southern district court reportedly submitted indictments on Thursday charging two Palestinian citizens of Israel with planning to attack Israeli soldiers, according to Israeli news website Arutz Sheva.
The report identified the detainees as Muhammad Masr and Abdullah Ayesh.
According to Arutz Sheva, the two were planning an attack on Israeli soldiers at three Israeli army bases of Arad, Dimona or Nevatim.
The motive for the attack was reportedly Israel’s declaration of the northern branch of Israel’s Islamic Movement as illegal, which occurred last year.
An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
