State nearing indictment of ’13 killer of unarmed Palestinian minor

More than two-and-a-half years after an IDF soldier shot and killed unarmed Palestinian Samir Awad, 16, in January 2013, the state informed the High Court of Justice on Monday that it is close to a decision on indicting the shooter and possibly additional suspects who were not previously considered.

The state informed the court that it had already held special pre-indictment hearings for the suspected soldiers on June 21 and June 23.

It asked the court for a further delay until at least September 10, to await the final decision to prosecute by State Attorney Shai Nitzan, because of the case’s “complexity and sensitivity.”
