PFLP chief refuses to recognize Israeli court
An Israeli military court rejected Monday a request for bail by a Palestinian faction leader who was nabbed by occupation troops earlier this month from a Palestinian prison after a 10-hour siege.
PFLP chief, Ahmed Saadat was seized in an Israeli army raid on Jericho prison.
At his brief court appearance Monday, Saadat refused to recognize the military tribunal's authority to try him and the judge, in turn, refused to hear his bail application. When he was led into court, Sadat raised his hands and shouted in Arabic, "I am fighting occupation! " before he was silenced by Israeli guards.
