JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli central court sentenced a Palestinian minor to 28 months in prison and fined 6000 shekels ($1563) Wednesday for stabbing two Israeli settlers, prisoners' committee says

Mohammad Hani Subhi Matouq,16,was arrested on Jan. 9, 2015 in the old city of Jerusalem. He has since been moved throughout several jails and is currently being held HaSharon prison, head of Jerusalem prisoners families committee Amjad Abu Asab said.

This year has been witness to spates of alleged stabbing attacks by Palestinians against Israeli military targets and civilians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs estimates an average of two Israelis injured by Palestinians a week in 2015 so far, while around 40 Palestinians have been injured per week by Israeli forces in the same time period, not including attacks on Palestinians by settlers.

Even if Mr Mohammad Matouq is only 16 years old, only
28 months in prison and a 6000 shekels fine is too little, for
the crimes of stabbing two people, or 2 attempted murders.

What I find interesting is that the previous two comments didn't point out or mention the fact that 40 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces and that the media decided that it wasn't important to turn the settlers' attacks on Palestinians into a story.
