Palestinian youth gets life behind bars for 2017 attack
Israeli court jails 22-year-old Palestinian for life for allegedly killing Israeli early last year
An Israeli court on Tuesday sentenced an Arab-Israeli youth to life in prison after convicting him earlier of killing an Israeli -- and injuring a second -- in a 2017 shooting attack.
“Israel’s Central Court of Haifa has sentenced 22-year-old Mohamed Shinawi to life behind bars,” the Israeli Broadcasting Authority reported.
Shinawi, the broadcaster added, “was convicted of killing one Israeli -- and injuring another -- in a shooting attack in the city of Haifa in January of last year”.
An Arab-Israeli from Haifa, Shinawi and his family are members of the sizeable Palestinian minority who remained in the city following the establishment of Israel in 1948.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
