Palestinian jailed 16 years for knife attack

AFP  |  Jerusalem 

An Israeli today sentenced a Palestinian to 16 years in prison for a knife attack that wounded an Israeli in in May, the justice ministry said.

Mohammed Bader, 21 and from Abu Dis in the occupied West on the outskirts of Jerusalem, was accused of having stabbed an ultra-Orthodox Jew on May 16 as he was walking with his wife and two of his children.



A plea bargain saw him plead guilty to attempted murder.

Several stiff sentences have been handed out recently to Palestinians convicted for attacks.

On Monday, an Israeli jailed a Palestinian for life for the 2015 killing of two Israelis and the wounding of a third in a Tel Aviv knife attack.

At a separate hearing Monday in Lod, near Tel Aviv, judges jailed another Palestinian for 16 years and six months.

Since October, 241 Palestinians, 36 Israelis, two Americans, a Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese have been killed, according to an AFP count.

Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, according to Israeli authorities.

Others were shot dead during protests or clashes, while some died in Israeli air strikes on Gaza.
