The Southern District Attorney's Office served an indictment in the Beersheba District Court on Thursday afternoon, charging a Gaza man with a series of national security offenses.

The indictment lists three separate charges and alleges that 23-year-old Rafah resident Ahram bin Hussein al-Zufi, joined Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), designated an illegal organization since 1990 and underwent illegal military and weapons training with an intent to harm state security.According to the indictment, after he joined the al-Quds Brigades, al-Zufi took part in 30 days of military training in the Morag region of the southern Gaza Strip. The exercises were conducted by masked al-Quds Brigades operatives, the indictment alleges, and included training in how to use weapons such as Kalashnikov rifles.

The indictment also charges al-Zufi with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and weapons offenses, alleging that the Gaza resident conspired to kill Israeli soldiers as part of an al-Quds Brigades cell run by Ismail abd-Alad.
