'Ansar Allah' a Terrorist Group

A Salafi Muslim group calling itself Ansar Allah is officially an illegal terrorist organization, following a decision from Defense Minister Ehud Barak. The Nazareth-based group was responsible for several violent attacks on Jews and Christians in the Galilee, most serious among them the 2009 murder of taxi driver Yafim Weinstein.

Barak's decision will make membership in the group illegal regardless of physical participation in terrorist attacks.
