    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, FEB 13 - A Palestinian family from east Jerusalem is living in fear after Dabiq, a magazine linked to the Islamic State, announced the capture of one of its members - 19 year-old Muhammad Sai'd Ismail Musallam - who is said to have confessed to being a Mossad informant. The young man's father confirmed to the local press that his son secretly left for Turkey a few months ago in order to join Isis forces but he denied any relationship with Israel's secret service. According to Dabiq, Musallam admitted he had been recruited by Israeli agents and said he was trained in the outskirts of Jerusalem, he also revealed he received a sum equivalent to one thousand euros. Dabiq maintains that what gave him away was his "suspicious" demenour. His father explained that after his military experience with Isis in Syria, Muhammad had expressed the wish to return home and asked his family to fund his journey back. He said he may have been arrested while trying to flee. The Jerusalem Post stated that according to estimates by the Shin Bet (the Israeli internal security service) a few dozen Israeli Arabs have joined ranks with Isis in Syria and Iraq.
