Durban - Siblings Ibrahim and Fatima Patel, who have been charged with violating the Explosives Act and Firearms Control Act, are expected back in court on Thursday.

The two were arrested and charged after a stun grenade and 21 bullets were allegedly found in their house.

They are expected to appear at the Kagiso Magistrate's Court.

The terror suspects' home in Azaadville, on the West Rand, was raided on July 9.

They were released on R5 000 bail each after their lawyer, Yousha Tayob‚ brought an urgent application before the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg for their release.

They were allegedly linked to the self-styled ISIS terror group and allegedly planned to set off explosives at a US embassy and "Jewish institutions" in South Africa.

Twins Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie, 23, were arrested during another raid on the same day.

They were charged with three counts of contravening the Protection of Constitutional Democracy against Terrorist and Related Activities Act.
