Assisting Gaza IPS in the midst of the massacre: The State Prosecutor's Office filed an indictment in the Beersheba District Court against Suleiman Abu Amash (49) from Rahat, Muhammad Tarabin (37) from Tarabin and Saber Sheikh al-Eid (52) from Rahat, after hiding four Gaza residents who entered Israel on October 7. The State Attorney's Office also requested that they be detained until the end of the proceedings and confiscated one of the houses used to house them.
This is a precedent-setting indictment in which the state seeks to confiscate the house in which the Gazans were staying, after a complex investigation that was handled by the Negev Medical Center.

The indictment filed by Attorney Sharon Schwartz of the Southern District Attorney's Office indicates that four Gaza residents entered Israel on the morning of the murderous attack through the breaches made by the terrorists in the fence. They stole a tractor and drove it until they ran out of fuel. The next day, the four arrived in Rahat and spent the night at the mosque there. A day later, during a tour of Rahat, two of the infiltrators met Abu Amash, told him they had entered Gaza on the day of the attack and asked to stay with him "until the situation calms down." Abu Amash agreed and replied that he knew the police were picking up people from Gaza, and urged them to stay. During the day, they were joined by two other infiltrators.
A few days later, some of the infiltrators noted that they had a relative living in Israel. Abu Amash contacted their relative Tarbin, who came with another man to pick them up at his home. About two weeks later, the other man contacted Eid and told him that he had two workers from Gaza without permits who wanted to work for him. Although Eid suspected that they had entered under cover of the attack, he placed them in his home and refrained from clarifying the circumstances of their entry into Israel.
In its request for remand until the end of the proceedings, the State Prosecutor's Office claimed that the three committed offenses against state security, and that they "endanger public safety by hiding Gazans who entered Israel under cover of the murderous attack and did not turn them in to the police. By their behavior, the respondents endangered the citizens of Israel, knowing that it is forbidden to sleep Gazans and that all residence permits for Gaza residents have been revoked, and even burdened the security forces, which were forced to invest efforts and resources in apprehending the Gazans."
Abu Amash and Tarbin were attributed 4 offenses of providing shelter or other relief to the infiltrator and to Eid 2 offenses of the law of providing shelter or other relief to the infiltrator.
