Charges filed against Muslima from northern Israel who joined al-Nusra terror group in Syria
Cleared for Publication: The Shin Bet domestic security service together with the Israeli Police, arrested Muslima terrorist Renu Rasmi Muhammad Shanawi, a 22-year-old Israeli-Arab resident of Makr in northern Israel, for illegally leaving for Syria and joining the al-Qaeda and ISIS-linked Jabhat al-Nusra terror group.
She was arrested for questioning when she returned to Israel on May 7, after spending a year in Syria as a member of the al-Nusra terror group.
During her interrogation at the Shin Bet, it emerged that she contacted a Syrian citizen who suggested that she travel to Syria and join the ranks of the terror group. She agreed to his proposal out of the desire to become a martyr jihadist while murdering infidels.
The Shin Bet investigation revealed that she stole money from her family to purchase a plane ticket. She arrived in Turkey and crossed the border into Syria with forged documentation.
She was arrested at the Idlib prison by members of the terrorist organization, and after her release, she asked to continue working in the ranks of the terror group, but she left Syria for Turkey and then returned to Israel.
