Life sentence, 20 years imposed on Jerusalemite prisoner

The Israeli District Court issued on Monday a life sentence and 20 additional years against the 37-year-old Palestinian prisoner Khaled Qutteina, a resident of Enata town to the northeast of occupied Jerusalem, on charges of carrying out a car-ramming attack which killed an Israeli settler and injured another, according to the Hebrew website 0404.

The Israeli court also imposed a 258 thousand-shekel (68 thousand dollars) fine on prisoner Qutteina to be paid for the family of the deceased settler and another similar fine for the family of the injured one.

Qutteina carried out a car-ramming attack on 15th April 2015 in occupied Jerusalem which led to killing an Israeli settler and injuring another.

Dozens of Palestinian youths from the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem were accused of carrying out stabbing, car-ramming, and shooting attacks in the occupied Palestinian territories since the outbreak of the Jerusalem Intifada in early October 2015, and were sentenced to long-term imprisonments.
