The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported, last Thursday, that an Israeli appellate court has accepted an appeal filed by the prosecutor’s office demanding to raise the prison sentence of a detained Palestinian teen from the 18 years to life in prison.

The PPS stated that the ruling was part of a deliberate Israeli policy targeting dozens of detainees, including Ayham Sabah, 18, who was only 14 years of age when he was taken prisoner.

The teen was convicted of killing an off-duty Israeli soldier at a shopping center on February 18th, 2016 and was ordered to pay more than a million Israeli shekels in compensation for the family of the soldier, identified as Tuvia Yanai Weissman, 21.

The incident in question took place when two 14-year-old Palestinians were shot and critically injured after carrying out a stabbing attack that left one Israeli killed and one injured in the Rami Levi supermarket, located in the Shaare Benyamin industrial complex, northwest of Jerusalem, in the occupied West Bank.

An Israeli police spokesperson said that two Palestinians entered the supermarket in the illegal Israeli settlement before stabbing the two Israelis, aged 17 and 35. Both Palestinians were shot and critically injured by an armed civilian present at the scene.

The spokesperson initially reported both Palestinians dead. The 35-year-old Israeli died from stab wounds in the upper body and torso shortly after.
