A Family of two Palestinian detainees accuse Israeli secret service of entrapment.
The two Palestinian detainees, are brothers and are believed to have been lured by a mysterious online character on Facebook to consent on carrying out a certain action against Israel.
According to their family, Amir and Mohammad would rarely venture out of the house as a result of their disabilities. So the two brothers would spend most of their time online. But Little did they know that they would be arrested by the Israeli police in early December of last year. The Israeli police claim the two brothers are a security threat.
In an apparent case of entrapment the two young men were detained on allegations of threatening public security. Israeli Police claim the alleged plot was weaved on the social networks.
Much of the details and circumstances surrounding the case remain vague and the court has imposed a gag order on what goes on behind closed sessions.
But what is being said and alleged is that the two young men were involved in online discussions with an enemy. What is also being said that the two brothers were apparently approached online by a character posing to be from an Islamic organization that has an anti Israel agenda. This character remains a mystery till today and is suspected of baiting the two brothers into consenting to carry out a certain action against Israel.
The defense lawyer confirms the speculation on the nature of this interesting case.
The case appears to be entirely built on online discussions.
Despite their poor health and constant need of medical attention the court was reluctant to release Amir and Mohammad. The defense says the Police wants to demonstrate to Palestinians inside Israel that they’re being watched and what is said online would be taken seriously.
