Jerusalem court sentences woman to 40 months

June 19, 2014 7:57 P.M. (Updated: June 19, 2014 7:57 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Jerusalem central court sentenced Alia al-Sheikh Ali Abbasi, 49, from Silwan, to 40 months in prison for attempting to stab an Israeli soldier in 2012.

Head of the Prisoners' Families Committee Amjad Abu Asab said that Abbasi was detained on Jan. 2, 2012 at the Shuafat refugee camp checkpoint and was transferred to house arrest on Feb. 22, 2012.

Abbasi is a mother of six, among which is a prisoner in Israeli jails Issa Daoud Abbasi, who was previously sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and has been in jail since 2010.

Abbasi will turn in herself on Aug. 3, 2014.

Silwan is a Palestinian village in East Jerusalem whose residents have Jerusalem residency cards but are not Israeli citizens, despite living under Israeli law.

Shuafat refugee camp, despite falling inside the Jerusalem city limits, is cut off from the rest of the city by the Israeli separation wall and a number of Jewish settlements.
