An indictment has been submitted to the military court in Judea against Tzabareen Abu Sharar, a female Arab doctor from the Judea-Samaria region who is accused of joining Hamas and conducting missions for the terrorist organization.
Abu Sharar visited Gaza during her medical studies according to the indictment, and there she met with a woman referred to as "Um Ahmed," who proposed that Abu Sharar aid Hamas.
It didn't take much convincing for the Arab doctor to agree.
Before returning from her studies in February she was given several missions to execute for the terrorist organization in the Judea-Samaria region.
As part of the operations she was tasked with, she contacted three people and tried to recruit them to form a terror cell for Hamas in the area.
Along with the indictment a request was submitted to the military court asking that Abu Sharar be kept in detainment until the end of legal proceedings against her.
Hamas's attempts to expand its influence in Judea and Samaria have been a troubling phenomenon; just last summer the IDF foiled a Hamas coup attempt against the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the region.
