A Palestinian security prisoner is suspected of having raped a guard at Gilboa prison on at least three different occasions in 2016, Hebrew media reports say after a court allows further details of the case to be publicized.

The unnamed guard, an IDF soldier, alleged last month that she was repeatedly raped by the prisoner, an accusation that has roiled the Israel Prions Service and has been followed by further claims of sexual assault against former soldiers.

The name of the prisoner remains under gag order.
