Two Israeli teenagers who beat a Sudanese citizen to death about a year ago in Petah Tikva signed a plea deal on Thursday, under which they are only expected to serve up to 10 years in prison.

One of the attackers, aged 16, will be charged with assault instead of manslaughter and is expected to serve up to eight years only. The other, who was an adult at the time of the attack, will be charged with manslaughter but will still serve up to 10 years.

According to the indictments of the two attackers, one of them approached the Sudanese man from behind, kicked him and knocked him to the ground. The other arrived at the scene some time later and kicked the man until he was unconscious.
