Israeli court jails Hebron man for stabbing attack

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israel's Ofer military court on Sunday sentenced a man from Hebron to 12 and a half years in jail on charges of stabbing two Israelis near Kiryat Arba settlement in 2009.

Wasim Maswada was found guilty of attempted murder. The indictment stated that he entered a gas station at the settlement's entrance on Nov. 11, 2009, armed with a knife and meat cleaver.

He stabbed a woman working at the station, and one of the customers who intervened to protect her, the prosecution added.

Maswada was shot and injured by an Israeli security guard after the assault, and the husband of the female victim ran him over repeatedly as he lay on the ground, shown in footage aired on Israel's Channel 2 TV.

Maswada was taken to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem and hospitalized for four months to recover from leg and abdomen fractures.

Earlier, Jerusalem Central Court sentenced the driver David Mizrahi to three months of community service, after his charges were lowered from attempted murder to causing serious injury.
