Teen terrorist gets 12 years in prison over Pisgat Ze’ev stabbing



Un adolescente palestino fue condenado a 12 años de prisión por apuñalar a dos israelíes

Ahmad Manasra, who was 13 when he and his 15-year-old cousin stabbed 13-year-old and 21-year-old Israelis, also ordered to pay NIS 180,000 in compensation to his two victims; ‘the fact they are minors does not confer immunity … particularly when a serious crime is committed,’ judge determines.

Ahmad Manasra, 14, who carried out a stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood a year ago, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Monday.

The Jerusalem District Court also ordered Manasra to pay his victims NIS 180,000 in compensation and sentenced him to two years suspended sentence.

Judge Yoram Noam wrote in his sentencing that «Recently, we’ve seen that even younger children, who are the defendant’s age, 14-16, take active part in acts of terrorism. However, the fact they are minors does not confer immunity … particularly when a serious crime is committed.»

The judge went on to note that «The punishment should express society’s aversion of such acts—which are designed to kill for nationalistic reasons—particularly in light of the ongoing wave of terror attacks that has been plaguing Israel. Leniency could send the wrong message to the public.»

Manasra was convicted in May of two counts of attempted murder and one count of arms possession after he and 15-year-old cousin Hassan Mahani stabbed and critically wounded 13-year-old Naor Shalev Ben-Ezra and wounded 21-year-old Yosef Ben-Shalom. Mahani was killed in the attack.

The judges rejected Manasra’s claim that he did not plan on killing his victims, only wound them, defining it «not credible» and noting that «the defendant was involved in the decision to kill Jews, including a minor. This is part of a series of deadly stabbings that logic cannot accept were done without the intention to kill.»
