Three Hamas militants pleaded innocent in a Jordanian military court Wednesday to charges of conspiring to attack Israeli businessmen, Jordanian intelligence officers and other targets in Jordan. Ayman Naji Daraghmeh, Ahmed Abu Rabee and Ahmed Abu Thiyab also pleaded innocent to monitoring and photographing the Israeli Embassy, the homes of the Israeli ambassador and his staff, as well as the offices of Jordanian companies that have dealings with Israeli firms. They were also charged with illegal possession of arms. If convicted, the three men could face the death penalty. Last April, Jordanian authorities arrested 20 alleged Hamas militants on suspicion of monitoring Jordanian intelligence officers and foreign tourists to plan attacks. Authorities released all but the three who appeared in court Wednesday, apparently for lack of evidence.
