( Customs officials at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport recently confiscated 120 rings bearing Arabic inscriptions pertaining to the Islamic State terror group.

The silver rings were reportedly made in Turkey and ordered by an importer in the de facto Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah. Israeli authorities plan to destroy the rings.
"The thought that there are people who affiliate themselves with a murderous agenda like ISIS is simply shocking," said a customs source, Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Tuesday.

"A large number of rings mean that there are buyers. It's scary and shocking to know that in the lands of the Palestinian Authority there are those who support that murderous organization. And who knows? Maybe with our help they'll discover a cell or ideological organization of ISIS," a customs security employee said.
