The court heard four prosecution witnesses today, and will hear another two tomorrow.


It was held under the chairmanship of Chief Military Judge Col. Mohammad Afif, alongside military judges Lt. Col. Abdulla Al Fawaz and Maj. Safwan Al Zu'bi, in the presence of the Attorney General. Lot Awad Al Dajah as well as the suspect's lawyer, Subhi Mawas.


The soldier entered a plea of not guilty at a military court hearing last week Wednesday.


Arrested in late 2016, the defendant has denied the charges of killing more than one person, insulting the dignity and reputation of the Jordanian Armed Forces and violating military orders, during a military court trial.
