Categories: Terrorism

Nizmi Abu Bakar, the suspected killer of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier Amit Ben Yigal, was indicted on Thursday by Israel’s Military Court for intentionally causing death.

Staff Sgt. Amit Ben Yigal, 21, was killed on the morning of May 12 when a brick was thrown at his head during an army operation in the village of Ya’bad, West of Jenin.

The indictment was mainly based on the defendant’s confession, which was supported by a confession from his wife, who apparently witnessed him return from the rooftop where the brick was dropped from, according to The Jerusalem Post.
