IDF Prosecution filed an indictment in the Judea Military Court against five Palestinians in connection with the murder of IDF Cpl. Dvir Sorek on August 8.

The five Palestinians, all of whom are affiliated with Hamas according to the indictment on Thursday, are Qasem al-Atzafra, Nazir al-Atzafra, Ahmad al-Atzafra, Yusef Zahur and Mahmoud Atuna.

Previously, the IDF announced that it sent messages to the defendants’ families announcing its intention to demolish their houses.

The stabbing attack in which Sorek was killed occurred near Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion.
