Israeli military prosecution on Monday filed a list of indictments against the Palestinian detainee Alaa Kubha on charges that he carried out a deadly car-ramming attack in Jenin.
According to the Hebrew-speaking 0404 news site, the list of indictments cited a run-over attack allegedly carried out by Alaa Kubha on March 16 which left two Israeli soldiers dead. The list also included attempts to kill two more soldiers in the alleged attack.
The military prosecution ruled for extending the detainee’s remand pending legal and judiciary procedures.
During the investigation process and in meetings with his lawyer, Kubha confirmed that the incident, which had occurred near Mevo Dotan settlement, built on Palestinian land in Jenin, was a traffic accident.
Kubha told his lawyer that he has been made to endure heavy pressure by the Israeli intelligence so as to force confession and that he has been heavily beaten in Israeli dungeons, where officers threatened to harm his family members, among them his sister, who owns the car.
The detainee added that he was brought by force by the Israeli forces to the re-presentation scene, where intelligence officers told him that the Israeli public calls for his execution and for the demolition of his family’s home. They further pledged that the penalty will only include a prison term in case he confesses to the alleged charges.
