The IDF played a major role in stopping two Lebanese brothers from downing an airplane heading to Abu Dabi, a crime for which the would-be terrorists received a hefty sentence in Australia this week.

The IDF’s Military Intelligence Unit 8200 helped thwart a major ISIS terrorist attack designed to down an Etihad Airways plane flying from Sydney to Abu Dhabi.

Unit 8200 soldiers, along with the other members of Israel’s intelligence community, fed Australian authorities the critical information they needed to arrest the terrorists, who came extremely close to executing the attack.

The criminals plotted the attack on behalf of ISIS, and were handed decades-long prison sentences this week for their role in this dastardly terror plot.
