ISIS Silver Rings Seized on Way to West Bank

A package of rings bearing the Islamic State logo and messages in Arabic that was confiscated at Ben Gurion International airport will be destroyed.

The interception of the suspicious package from Turkey, containing about 120 silver rings, was announced Tuesday by the Customs Authority, the NRG Hebrew-language news website reported.

The package was ordered by an importer in the West Bank Palestinian city of Ramallah. There were hundreds of other pieces of jewelry in the package as well.

“A large number of rings mean that there are buyers. It’s scary and shocking to know that in the lands of the Palestinian Authority there are those who support that murderous organization. And who knows? Maybe with our help they’ll discover a cell or ideological organization of ISIS,” a customs security official told Ynet.

The Shin Bet security service and other security officials were notified of the discovery.
