Israel Prison Service foils attempt to smuggle phones to jailed terrorists
The Israel Prison Service announced on Sunday that it had foiled an attempt to smuggle 11 cellphones to Muslim terrorists serving time in the Ofer security prison for terrorists.
Two Muslim terrorists, one affiliated with the PLO terror group and the other with Fatah, were brought to prison after committing minor offenses, apparently in order to get arrested and smuggle the phones into prison.
The smuggling attempt was discovered when one of the prisoners triggered a magnetometer.
During the interrogation, he confessed to having phones in his body and even excreted three cellphones.
The magnetometer was also triggered in the lower back of the second prisoner. At first, he claimed to have platinum plating in the body, but after it was decided to send him to hospital, he admitted he was carrying two packages, each with four cellphones.
