(Scroll down for video) Three men were arrested on charges of terrorism after allegedly helping Hamas fire rockets at Israel, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

An Israel Police spokesperson announced that three Arabs, residents of east Jerusalem in their early 20’s, were arrested on charges of violation of the directive to prevent terrorism after they recorded the falling of rockets on Ashdod and broadcast the locations of the hits, and by doing so assisted Hamas in their terror efforts.

The three work at a construction site in Ashdod, building a very tall tower named “K Tower.”

The building has a commanding view the entire city. When rockets were fired at the city a few days ago, one of them recorded the location of where the rockets hit. The three are heard cheering and shouting “Allah Akbar,” as the rockets hit their civilian targets.

The police received information about this clip and arrested the three. The phone with which the video was recorded was recovered, and the three implicated themselves. It is prohibited in general to publish in any way the exact location of where rockets hit. The terror organizations use this information for future attacks.

They were charged with violation of the directive to prevent terrorism, racism, incitement, violence and terror. They were released on bail.
