JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli public prosecution filed indictments Friday against two Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem for alleged involvement in attacks carried out on Israelis.

Khamis Tamim al-Salaymeh, 57, was indicted for picking up three Palestinian youth who carried out a stabbing and shooting attack that killed an Israeli police officer and injured another at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City in February. The three youth were shot dead at the scene.

According to the indictment, al-Salaymeh transported the three youths the day of the attack from the village of al-Ram in the occupied West Bank northeast of Jerusalem to al-Issawiya in East Jerusalem.

Al-Salaymeh said he drove the youths, as part of his job driving Palestinian workers, and had no knowledge the youth were planning an attack.

Israeli media reported at the time that two of the three were barred from entrance into Israel and that all three had crossed Israel's separation wall illegally.

The Israeli authorities detained al-Salaymeh on February 8, and his detention was extended by the court to next Tuesday.

The court also indicted Khalid Qutteineh, 38, for carrying out a vehicular attack in the French Hill settlement in occupied East Jerusalem on April 15, 2015, which killed an Israeli and critically injured another.

Judges said they believed Qutteineh deliberately carried out the attack after he was stopped alongside his family at a military checkpoint in the Shufat neighborhood.
