The military prosecution on Sunday will indict Salah Muhammad Salah Hamad, a Palestinian Authority police officer involved in the murder of the late Ben Yosef Livnat 9 years ago.

Salah was in protective custody until a few weeks ago in the Palestinian Authority, and upon release, Israeli security forces arrested him.

After the investigation today, the military prosecution will indict him for murder in the Samaria military court.

Attorney Haim Bleicher of the Honenu legal organization, which is accompanying Livnat's family, said, "Today an important indictment will be filed for the murder of Ben Yosef Livnat by a squad of Palestinian police officers who came to Joseph's Tomb, saw worshipers there and began spraying their vehicles with bullets for no reason other than that they were Jews."

"We are strengthening the military prosecution to do justice and finally bring the murderers to prison for their entire lives. We hope that also with the additional terrorist who is tried, and now we are in his appeal proceedings, justice will be done and he will go to prison for his entire life, as will the rest of the squad who are in protective custody in the Palestinian Authority,” Bleicher added
