The father of a man convicted of murdering IDF soldier Ron Kokia in 2017 has been indicted for threatening the victim’s father and calling him a murderer.
Odeh Abu Jaudah, whose son Khaled stabbed Kokia to death in Arad, clashed with Boaz Kokia at the Beersheba District Court last month. The two confronted each other, after a hearing for the elder Abu Jaudah, a resident of an unrecognized Bedouin village, who is facing charges tied to the attack, but is not accused of involvement in murder.
“We know where you live, let’s take this outside,” Abu Jaudah shouted at Kokia, according to the charge sheet. “You are murderers, you are shit.”
It is not revealed what Kokia said or who had instigated the exchange.
