Israeli court rejects appeal to release Naalwa's mother, brother

Dec. 20, 2018 12:49 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 4, 2019 11:26 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military court of Salem rejected, on Wednesday, an appeal to release the mother and brother of Ashraf Naalwa on a bail.

Ashraf Naalwa was shot and killed by Israeli forces on December 13th, 2 months after carrying out a shooting attack in the Israeli Barkan industrial zone, killing two Israelis.

The Palestinian Authority's Committee for Prisoners and Former Prisoner's said that the appeal was presented by the lawyer representing Naalwa's mother and brother.

The Israeli judge of the Salem military court rejected the release of Wafaa Mihdawi and Amjad Naalwa.

Naalwa's mother and brother were detained during the week after the shooting carried he had carried out, in an attempt by Israel to pressure him to turn himself in.

The two are still being held without any real charges.

The family's lawyer said that he would be appealing the ruling, for immediate release, at the Ofer military court.

The indictment list included that Naalwa's mother, Wafaa, had known of his intention to carry out an attack two weeks before he did, and that he had weapons and had informed his brother as well. Israel accuses Ashraf's brother, Amjad, of disrupting their work as he refused to give them recorders of surveillance cameras from around the family's home.

Israeli forces had also demolished Naalwa's family home during the past week as a collective punishment against the family.
