An Israeli court has charged a Palestinian engineer kidnapped by Mossad in Ukraine with developing rockets for the Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas.
The southern district prosecution filed an indictment against Dirar Abu Sisi on Monday, Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported.
"Abu Sisi was engaged in the development of missiles to be launched by Hamas, including increasing their range and ability to pierce steel so as to penetrate armored vehicles and thus strike at soldiers," a summary of the indictment said.
Abu Sisi has rejected all charges and Hamas has said he is not a member of the group.
"I am not guilty. I have no connection to security operations against Israel," Abu Sisi said.'
