Three Palestinian terrorists who carried out terror attacks during the current terror wave were sentenced today (Monday). A 32-year-old female terrorist from East Jerusalem’s Jabel Mukaber neighborhood who lit gas canisters on fire in her car was sentenced to 11 years in prison for attempted murder. The court also ruled that she pay 20,000 NIS in compensation to the police officer she injured. In addition, two minors who carried out a stabbing attack near Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate were sentenced to 11 years in prison. At the end of the sentencing, the minors yelled, “Allahu Akbar,” while their family members shouted insults at the judges.

In October 2015, the female terrorist took a lighter and placed gas canisters in her car. Her plan was to try to murder as many Israelis and Israeli security officials as possible by blowing up her vehicle.

As she was traveling from Jericho to Jerusalem, a police officer stopped her near Ma’ale Adumim. She lit the canisters on fire and shouted, “Allahu Akbar.” The officer suffered burns on his face and chest. The terrorist was arrested at the scene. After the sentencing today, the terrorist’s relatives shouted: “She only said, ‘Allahu Akbar.’ Why 11 years?”

Shortly thereafter, two minors, ages 14 and 16, from Shuafat were sentenced to 11 years in prison. The two Palestinian minors carried out a stabbing attack in Jerusalem in the beginning of the year.

As reported earlier today by JOL, terrorist Ahmed Manasra was sentenced to 12 years in prison. Manasra was 13 years old when he carried out a stabbing attack in which two Israelis were injured.
