Official: Israel to imprison 4 men for alleged Hamas involvement

Nov. 2, 2013 12:28 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 2, 2013 4:24 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court on Thursday issued detention orders for four Palestinian men who were accused of being affiliated with Hamas, a committee official told Ma'an.

Ahjad Abu Asab, the director of the Jerusalem prisoners' families committee, said that the court ruling called for the 42-month imprisonment of Haitham Shukri Mohammad Tahaa, a 44-year-old father of five.

Tahaa's prison sentence in al-Ramla begins on Jan. 15, 2014, Asab said.

Additionally, he said that Abdul Rahman Owis, 51, was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Ashraf Atiya Zaloum, 36, and Mohammad al-Atrash from Beit Safafa were also sentenced to 6 months in prison, he added.

The court decision comes three days after Israel released 26 veteran prisoners in conjunction with US-brokered peace talks with the Palestinians.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which East Jerusalem forms a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
