CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - The Shin Bet (General Security Agency) and the Israel Police lifted a media gag order on the indictment of an Israeli Arab medical student recruited by Hezbollah.

Khaled Kashkush, 29, a resident of the Israeli Arab town of Kalansua who was studying in Frankfurt, was arrested at Ben Gurion Airport upon returning to Israel on June 16.

On Wednesday, Kashkush was indicted at a court hearing in Petah Tikva.

The indictment stated that Muhammad Hashem, a recruiter for Hezbollah, paid Kashkush 13,000 euros to provide the names of other Israeli Arabs studying abroad.

Hashem instructed Kashkush to provide him with information on Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers and security personnel once he began working in an Israeli hospital.

The indictment stated that Hashem trained Kashkush to avoid detection as an undercover agent for Hezbollah.
