Israel on Tuesday indicted two sisters of Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh for entering the Gaza Strip, reported Ma'an News Agency.

Sabah Haniyeh, 47, and Laila Abu Raqeeq, 64, are being charged for entering Gaza in December 2012, according to the lawyer for the prosecution.

The sisters, who hold Israeli IDs and live in Tel as-Sabi in southern Israel, had applied for Israeli permission to enter Gaza in 2006 and 2009 but were refused.

In December 2012, they entered Egypt through the Taba crossing and traveled on to the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing. They stayed in Gaza until Feb. 17, according to the prosecution.
