An indictment was filed Thursday in the Military Court in Samaria against Amid Ayoub Fawzi Zamari, a resident of Qalqiliya, charging the defendant with conspiracy to murder Israeli settlement activists Daniella Weiss and Moshe Zar, in addition to other serious security offenses.
Weiss, 73, served as the first mayor of the Samaria Jewish community Kedumim, beginning in September 1996, and re-elected for a second term in November 2001.
Zar, 80, established the Jewish communities of Ramat Gilad and Havat Gilad — Gilad’s Farm — in memory of his son Gilad, a security officer of the Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council, who was murdered in a terrorist ambush on May 29, 2001.
The military prosecutor’s office has requested that Zamari be remanded until the end of proceedings as well.
“The IDF will continue to act to prevent terror attacks and to bring terrorist elements to justice,” the IDF said.
