West Bank, ALRAY - An Israeli military court has handed lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines to two Palestinians from the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.


The Israeli military court of "Salem" sentenced Majd Amer and Mohammad Hanaiysha to 70 and 58 months respectively.


The Israeli military court also ordered each one of them to pay a fine of 3,000 shekels ($800).


According to the Asra Media Office, the Israeli occupation army detained Amer and Hanaiysha after storming and ransacking their homes in Beit Dajan village, east of Nablus, on 16 October 2021.


The Israeli occupation authorities then moved both of them to the "Petah Tikva" detention facility, where he was questioned for more than one month and a half in harsh and inhumane conditions.


After postponing their trials 16 times, the Israeli military court of "Salem" issued them severe sentences.


The Israeli occupation is holding around 4,900 Palestinian detainees, including 34 women and nearly 160 children, in inhumane conditions and harsh conditions, according to Palestinian prisoners' rights organisations.
