The Israeli Agency Shin Bet will formally charge the leader of the Islamic Jihad movement in the occupied West Bank, Bassam Al-Saadi, the Israeli army announced.

According to the Israeli army, the investigation into Al-Saadi has been completed and the prosecutor has decided to charge him with membership in a “terror group”, in reference to the Islamic Jihad movement, conducting operations for the group, incitement and “supporting terrorism”.

Earlier on Sunday, a military court extended Al-Saadi’s detention for another five days until August 25.

Al-Saadi and his defense team deny the charges against him.

Al-Saadi was arrested on August 1 by Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.

His arrest led Israel to launch a “preemptive” strike on the Gaza Stri, which killed 49 Palestinians including 17 children.
