13-year-old Arab teen attacked with knife at Israelis standing at a bus stop near Kiryat Arba, was sentenced to 58 days in jail and four months probation.
The website «Mako» indicates that the incident occurred at a bus stop in the area of Kiryat Arba. A young terrorist attempted to stab a Jew waiting for the bus. The teenager was defused by the military. During the detention he was wounded. During the interview with investigators the teen denied the charges and said that he intended to kill a Jew.
The publication notes that in the consideration of this case revealed that the law on which the military courts in Judea and Samaria, does not allow to sentence the minor, who is under 14 years of age, for a period of more than six months, regardless of the severity of his crime.
«Mako» reports that activists of the organization «Honen» a few days ago addressed to the Minister of justice Ayelet shaked and to the military Prosecutor with the requirement to eliminate the «absurd situation» and to amend the law so as not to give terrorist organizations the ability to use teenagers for attacks.
