An Israeli settler was imprisoned today, in implementation of a court ruling that sent him 10 months in prison, after he was found guilty of participating in the burning of the Dawabsha family in Palestinian Nablus in 2015.
According to the “Yediot Aharonot” website, the settler, who was described as a “minor,” entered Maasiyahu Prison.
The website indicated that he was sentenced to 3 and a half years in prison, of which 32 months he spent in detention, then he signed an appeal deal and a plea of guilt about 5 months ago, and the sentence was reduced to 10 months only.
The indictment was amended accordingly at the time, and the charge of conspiracy to commit a crime with racist motives was satisfied, while the charge of participation and planning of the crime was dropped.
An Israeli court had convicted Amiram bin Uliel, the killer of the Dawabshe family, of which only the child Ahmad had survived, to 3 life imprisonment and an additional 20 years.
Parents Saad and Reham Dawabsheh, and their son Ali, were victims of this crime, while Ahmed, the only survivor, was seriously injured by the explosive device that Ben Uliel threw into the family home.
The court ordered the killer to pay NIS 258,000 in compensation for the child Ahmed, who is still suffering the effects of his serious injuries.
The Israeli judiciary had acquitted the perpetrator, who admitted his crime last May, of the terror charge, only holding him accountable for the deliberate murder of 3 people.
