Senior Palestinian Security Official Arrested and Charged for Incitement

The Israel Security Agency (ISA), in cooperation with the IDF, last month (August 2017), arrested Muhammad al-Sawiti, a resident of Beit Awwa, on suspicion of incitement and support for a hostile organization.

The suspect, who holds a senior position in the office of the head of Palestinian Preventive security in Jenin, recently posted on Facebook extremist content including a direct call to carry out acts of violence against Jews and words of praise, admiration and support for acts of terrorism.

The suspect also posted photos of Adolf Hitler and Adolf Eichmann alongside expressions of longing for men like them.

It should be emphasized that online incitement, especially on social media, inflames passions and is liable to lead to acts of terrorism.

Al-Sawiti was, yesterday (Monday, 4 September 2017), in Judea Military Court, indicted for incitement.

The ISA will continue to act to neutralize and thwart online incitement to terrorism.
