Israel sentences injured Palestinian minor to more than 3 years in Israeli prison

Sept. 20, 2017 7:39 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 25, 2017 3:44 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military court sentenced a wounded 16-year-old Palestinian to three years and two months in Israeli prison on Wednesday.

According to sources, Lama al-Bakri was sentenced to prison and was ordered to pay a 6,000 shekel ($1,715) fine.

Al-Bakri was initially detained in Dec. 2015 after allegedly attempting a stabbing attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba in Hebron in southern occupied West Bank.

Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured al-Bakri at the time.

An uptick of violence erupted in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel in 2015, when scores of Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces for actually or allegedly carrying out attacks on Israelis.

According to Ma'an documentation, 55 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of the year during actual or alleged attacks, while at least 18 of these Palestinians were killed during clashes with Israeli forces or during violent Israeli raids in the occupied West Bank.

Since the beginning of 2017, 13 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians, almost all of whom were uniformed Israeli officers or Israeli settlers residing in occupied Palestinian territory in violation of international law.

Palestinians have often cited the daily frustrations and routine Israeli military violence imposed by Israel's nearly half century occupation of the Palestinian territory as main drivers for political attacks on Israelis.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 300 Palestinian minors were being held in Israeli prison as of August.
