The Israeli Radio reported that the District Court in Jerusalem sentenced resident Moneer Attoun to five years imprisonment, and one year of suspended sentence.

Other charges brought against him include “preparing explosives to be used against Israeli targets”.

On Tuesday evening, soldiers broke into the home of elected legislator, political prisoner, Mohammad Abu Jheisha, searched it causing extensive damage, and kidnapped his son Mo’taz, 25. Soldiers also searched several nearby homes and kidnapped two residents.

The recent Israeli military escalation is being conducted while extremist settler groups are escalating their attacks against Palestinian homes, lands and holy sites.
