HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military court sentenced a Palestinian on Wednesday to 18 years in prison over an alleged vehicular attack in 2014 in which three Israeli soldiers were wounded.

Hummam Jamal Masalmeh, a resident of the Hebron district village of Beit Awwa in the southern occupied West Bank, was convicted by the Ofer military court of carrying out a hit-and-run attack against three Israeli soldiers near a military tower at the entrance of the al-Arrub refugee camp on Nov. 4, 2014.

Masalmeh reportedly turned himself over to Israeli authorities following the incident, saying that he had accidentally lost control of his vehicle, panicked and fled.

However, Israeli investigations later ruled that Masalmeh had carried out an intentional attack.
