Palestinian prisoner declared innocent in hotel bombing case

Nov. 9, 2017 1:36 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 10, 2017 2:06 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian prisoner was exonerated by an Israeli court on Thursday from charges against him alleging that he carried out a bombing at an Israeli hotel in 2015.

According to Lawyer Yousif Nasasra of the Palestinian Committee of Prisoner’s Affairs, Jerusalemite Khalil al-Nimr, 23, was detained on November 30th, 2015 over accusations of carrying out an explosion that targeted the Rio Hotel in the southern Israeli city of Eilat.

According to a statement from Nasasra, al-Nimr was proved innocent on Thursday after several court sessions.

The 23-year-old is set to be released during the coming few days, unless an Israeli military prosecution appeals the court’s order.

Since a wave of unrest erupted across Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory in October 2015, dozens of Palestinians have been arrested and imprisoned for attempting and allegedly attempting to carry out attacks against Israelis, specifically armed forces.
