OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israeli security apparatuses apprehended an Australian national of Saudi origin at the Ben Gurion airport on suspicion of espionage.

The Israeli Channel 2 said that the Australian citizen, Iyad Rashid Abu Arja, was indicted on Tuesday evening for being a member of Hamas and entering Israel “on a mission for the Islamic militant group”.

The report said Abu Arja was trained in Syria and was sent to Israel by Hamas on a spying mission.

“According to police investigators, Arja has a background in computers, and apparently he was asked to aid in acquiring various technological devices for the purposes of encryption, photography, and guiding missiles”, the report added.
