Israeli military court sentences Palestinian to three life sentences

Nablus – Ma'an – An Israeli military court sentenced 33-year-old Khaled Hamad, from the West Bank city of Nablus, to three life terms in prison on Friday.

The court had charged Hamad with transferring a suicide bomber in 2002 to a junction near the illegal settlement of Ariel. Three settlers were killed and 15 others were injured in the attack.

Hamad had been on trial or in administrative detention since 2002.
