Israeli Intelligence: First Local ISIS Terror Cell Arrested

JERUSALEM (AP) – Israel’s Shin Bet security service says it arrested the first known Islamic State (ISIS) cell operating inside the country.

The intelligence agency said Sunday that the seven cell members belong to the country’s Arab minority.

It said they were caught just before executing an attack and were practicing on animals how to behead people.

It said the seven admitted to belonging to the extremist group, which controls about a third of Iraq and Syria, where it has beheaded scores of captive soldiers as well as Western journalists and aid workers.

Thousands of Muslims from Western countries are believed to have flocked to Syria to join the Islamic State. The Shin Bet estimates that around 30 Arab Israelis have joined the group in Syria.
