An indictment was submitted to the Samaria (Shomron) Military Court, Thursday, against Palestinian Authority (PA) security officer Nuaf Bani Auda in the 2011 shooting death of Ben-Yoseph Livnat, nephew of Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat, at Joseph's Tomb (Kever Yoseph) in the PA-assigned Samarian city of Shechem.
