The two Hamas-connected men, both Israeli citizens, were indicted Sunday for planning to attack Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem. The men had visited a hillside near the stadium to determine whether it would be an appropriate place to launch a missile at the stadium when it was full of spectators for a Beitar Jerusalem soccer game. They had also acquired rifles in eastern Jerusalem to carry out other attacks.
They were found guilty of membership and support of a terrorist organization, illegal use of weapons and being tied with crime. They suspects were also accused of joining Hamas and working as representatives of Hamas at the Al-Aksa Mosque over the past three years.
