Israel court orders Palestinian prisoner to pay fine worth $286,000

Jan 08,2020

Al-Rajabi, who was arrested on 19 October 2016, is serving a prison term of 15 years.

An Israeli Magistrates’ Court in Jerusalem ordered Palestinian prisoner to pay fine worth one million shekels ($286,000), a statement said.

The Palestinian prisoner Murad Al-Rajabi, from Jerusalem’s Silwan neighbourhood, was accused of carrying out a stabbing attack in 2016.

Human rights sources said that the Israeli occupation’s court claimed that Al-Rajabi had wounded a number of Israeli Jewish settlers in the alleged attack.

The court ruled that the prisoner has to pay 30,000 shekels ($8,600) to one of the settlers who claims to have been wounded in the alleged attack.

Al-Rajabi, who was arrested on 19 October 2016, is serving a prison term of 15 years.

During 2016, Israeli occupation forces and police murdered and kidnapped tens of Palestinians over claims of carrying stabbing attacks or ramming Israeli police and troops. They published pictures or videos showing them carrying the claimed attacks.

Several specialists have proved that those pictures and videos were doctored by the Israeli occupation in order to justify their violations against the Palestinian civilians.
