(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Three Hamas operatives arrested by security forces in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge were indicted Sunday for allegedly planning terror attacks against Israel. The three, arrested during a raid on the Palestinian village of Hozaa, were charged with multiple counts of membership in an illegal organization, firearms offenses, and conspiracy to commit murder.

The Beersheba District Court, where the case is being heard, granted the Israeli government’s motion to remand the three—Mohammed Kadra, 28, Mohammed Abu Draz, 23, and Mohammed Abu Tir, 36—for the duration of the legal proceedings against them.

The indictment stated that Kadra, Draz, and Tir participated in illegal military training and in digging tunnels under the Israel-Gaza border, with the intention of ambushing and abducting Israeli soldiers.
