Today (Monday), the Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Raed Khalil to two life sentences and another 20 years in prison. Khalil, who is from the Palestinian town of Dura in Hebron, committed a deadly stabbing attack in the Panorama office building in Tel Aviv a year ago. The court also ruled that Khalil will compensate the families of the two Israelis he murdered.

The judges said that Khalil committed the murder in extremely severe circumstances and ruled that he will not be able to be released from prison until he has served at least 40 years of both of the life sentences and he will not be able to be included in any future prisoner exchange deal, meaning that he will be in jail for at least 100 years.

“We’ve patiently waited a year for this moment,” said Alex, the brother of Reuven Aviram, one of the Israelis Khalil murdered. “The judges gave the murderer what he deserves. He doesn’t need to leave the prison.”

In July 2016, Khalil was convicted of two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder after he confessed to the crimes. In the terror attack, Aviram and Aharon Yesiav were murdered.
