Islamic State Flags Found In Northern Israel

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

A stash of Islamic State flags were discovered by municipal employees in Upper Nazareth on Tuesday, The Jerusalem Post reported.

About 25 small Islamic State flags were found piled in bushes along the side of the road in the city’s industrial zone, police said.

The flags had plastic mountings for affixing to car windows.

The authorities so far don’t know who put them there or why, and closed off the area and opened an investigation.

Last week police detained for questioning a 24-year-old teacher from Kfar Kara who was discovered in possession of an Islamic State flag and printed materials on the subject of jihad. Police said the teacher confessed to bringing the materials to Israel from Jordan, where he was studying.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli media reported that a 29-year-old Palestinian woman in Neve Tirtzah prison could face prosecution for allegedly praising the Islamic State during a conversation with other prisoners on Yom Kippur.
