Israeli court sentences Palestinian teenage girl to ten years

The Israeli District Court in occupied Jerusalem sentenced, Wednesday, a Palestinian teenage girl to ten years in prison, after convicting her of “an attempted stabbing attack,” in the city. The verdict came after Israel delayed her court hearings 24 times since he abducted in February 2016. The court session was held after repeated delays and rescheduling by the Israeli Prosecutor’s Office, then following Wednesday’s hearing, the teen, identified as Malak Salman, 17, was sentenced to ten year in prison.

Her lawyer and family rejected an Israeli plea agreement sentencing her to fifteen years in prison in exchange for “confession of carrying out a stabbing attack against the soldiers.” Malak was taken prisoner, on February 9th 2016.
