Israel extends detention of suspects in Qalqiliya soldier killing

12:00 Sep 25 2013 Jalama military court

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Wednesday extended the detention period of Nidal Amar, accused of killing an Israeli soldier in Qalqiliya last Friday.

A lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners Society told Ma'an that Israel's Jalama military court extended Amar's detention for a further 15 days to continue the interrogation process.

The detention period of two people accused of helping Amar was extended by 14 days.

Sergeant Tomer Hazan, 20, was killed by Nidal Amar, 42, a resident of Beit Amin in Qalqiliya last Friday, Israel's army said.

Amar allegedly lured Hazan to the village of Beit Amin before killing him and throwing his body down a well.

He told interrogators that he had killed the Israeli soldier in order to use the body as a bargaining chip to free his brother, who has been jailed in Israel since 2003.
