Israeli family demands capital punishment for al-Hashlamoun



Family of a deceased Israeli settler woman called on an Israeli court to sentence the Palestinian injured detainee Maher Hamdi al-Hashlamoun, 30, to death. 

Prisoner al-Hashlamoun had reportedly been involved in a stabbing attack resulting in the death of an Israeli settler and the wounding of two others near the Etzion settlement complex, adjacent to Bethlehem city, on November 10, 2014.

The family of the deceased Israeli woman incited the court to sentence the detainee to capital punishment and to order him to pay six million shekels in compensation. His lawyer said the court adjourned the hearing to Thursday.

During the hearing, prisoner al-Hashlamoun, a father of two kids, kept yelling: “Allah the Greatest,” moments before he addressed the attendants saying: “Jerusalem lies deep in our hearts and souls. You are the ones who assaulted our holy al-Aqsa Mosque. This is our way to defend such a sacred place.” 

In a related development, the Israeli Haifa-based Central Court on Monday sentenced the Palestinian detainee Morad Ali Hussein, from Jenin, to 148 months in jail and another 23-month suspended prison-term on charges of storming a settler’s house in Galilee, one year ago, in an attempt to kidnap settlers and use them as bargaining chips in prisoner swap deals.

The court further alleged that the detainee attempted to hurl Molotov cocktails at settlers’ vehicles, further sentencing him to a 19-thousand-shekel fine to be shelled out in compensation for such alleged indictments.
