A report by the Hebrew newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, said today, Tuesday, that 1,400 indictments were filed against Palestinians during the year 2020.
According to the report, which relies on figures from the Israeli Military Prosecution Office, in 2019, 1613 indictments were filed against Palestinians.
He pointed out that out of the total of the indictments filed in 2020, of which 245 relate to (stone throwing and daily confrontations), which Israelis are called "popular terrorism", compared to 511 indictments in this regard in 2019.
The report stated that about 1000 administrative orders were signed, compared to 1,334 in 2019.
The report attributed the reason for the decrease in Palestinian attacks in 2020 (compared to the number of indictments in 2019) to the spread of the "Corona" virus and the accompanying closures in Israel and the West Bank.
The documents show that the level of penalties that the Israeli military prosecutor seeks to achieve regarding stone throwers ranges from 9 months to a year, throwing Molotov cocktails from 16 to 18 months, and throwing explosives for a year and a half, all of which depend on the absence of injuries.
