Israeli military court at Ofer, near Bitunia, released eight political prisoners, all young men from Nabi Saleh. The prisoners, arrested over the past several months during night raids, were accused of stone throwing and other offences, and the prosecution initially requested significant jail sentences of several years. However, failing to provide significant evidence, the prosecutors reached a plea bargain with all eight, with time served. The prisoners were released late in the evening as a large crowd of their kin were waiting for them outside the fences of Ofer military camp. Two more young men from Nabi Saleh, ‘Ez al-Din and Maher, remain in prison.
