A Palestinian terrorist convicted of the attempted murder of a soldier in Tel Aviv last year was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Monday. He was also ordered to pay the victim NIS 40,000 in damages.
On May 30, 2016, Amar Jandab, 20, who entered Israel illegally and worked at a construction site in Givatayim, spotted an IDF soldier and started following him.
Jandab then stabbed the soldier with a Phillips screwdriver in his back and head, pushed him to the ground and called out “Allahu Akbar.”
The soldier, who was lightly wounded, was able to fight off the terrorist, and Jandab fled the scene. He was pursued by several civilians and later arrested by police. Read more at YNet.
