An Arab resident of Jerusalem has been arrested for working on behalf of Hamas, Maariv reports. The man, Rami Alami, allegedly abused his position as an attorney working with imprisoned terrorists.
Alami allegedly took messages from terrorists serving time in Israeli prisons, and passed them on to Hamas. He slipped the messages out of prison on small notes hidden on his person.
He is also accused of transferring money on behalf of the terrorist organization.
Alami worked out of Jerusalem’s Old City. He has Jerusalem resident status.
Several recent terrorist attacks have been carried out by Arab residents of Jerusalem, including an attack in January that left an American citizen with serious injuries, and an attack last week that hurt seven Israeli police officers.
