NABLUS (Ma’an) — An Israeli military court sentenced two men from a Nablus village to multi-year jail terms on Sunday after they were convicted of membership of DFLP and “conducting aggressive acts against Israel.”

Rashid Othman Dweikat, a student at al-Najah university in Nablus, was sentenced to 33 months and Abed Zeidan Dweikat to 28 months, a Ma’an correspondent said.

Both men, from Nablus district village Beita, were charged with being activists in the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a left-wing political group.

They were detained approximately one year ago at a so-called “flying checkpoint” — temporarily erected by Israeli forces — and Israeli interrogators quizzed them about planned attacks against Israel, the correspondent said.
