Four life sentences for murderer of Salomon family in Halamish

Four life sentences for murderer of Salomon family in Halamish

An Israeli military court has sentenced a Palestinian resistance fighter to four life sentences after three settlers were killed in an illegal outpost previous year, according to Ynet News.

In the minority opinion, Judge Dov Gilboa argued in favor of executing Abed, stating that "he enjoyed the whole trial with a smile".

Additionally, he was convicted of attempted murder of Yosef's wife, incitement and stone-throwing.

Palestinian terrorist Omar al-Abed, who murdered three members of the Salomon family in Neve Tzuf in Samaria in July, was sentenced by an Israeli Military court on Thursday to four life terms in prison.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara console relatives of the three members of the Salomon family who were killed in a terror attack in Halamish on July 22, 2017.

He was also ordered to pay damages in the sum of NIS 1.8 million.

During the sentencing hearing the military court judges acknowledged that they had considered the death penalty, which the Salomon family and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman had called for.

After killing Chaya, 46, Abed proceeded to stab Tova, 68, who managed to escape and run upstairs shouting, "Terrorist", the indictment said. "We need the death penalty so that these terrorists will not be able to build a new home, and if not the death penalty, then we need to seriously toughen their imprisonment conditions and withhold from them everything but the minimum, things like television or the possibility of education". "We call on the government not to release him in any future prisoner release deals".

Elad Salomon, son of Haya and Yosef and father of various Salomon children, fought an extended back and forth with al-Abed, even succeeding at one point and grabbing the knife.

"What's my life worth when Al-Aqsa is being desecrated", the 19 year-old wrote on Facebook hours before targeting and killing the family members, referencing a mosque on Jerusalem's Temple Mount.

"All of us are the sons of Palestine and the sons of al-AQsa", the post read. If you don't open its gates, I am confident that others will follow me to strike with an iron hand. "I am warning you".

The bill, approved 52-49, would ease the requirements military courts must meet to sentence those convicted of "terrorist" crimes to death was it to be voted through Parliament until the last step.

Previously, only officer Meir Tobianski from the newly born Israeli army was sentenced to death in Israel, after being accused of spying for the enemy in 1948.
