An Israeli military court sentenced on Monday Palestinian boy to 35 years in prison, ordered him to pay fine estimated by $264,700 over allegations of stabbing settlers in occupied West Bank.

The Ofer military court passed the verdict on 17-year-old Ayham Bassem Sabbah, a resident of Qalandia refugee camp north of Jerusalem.

Sabbah and 14-year-old Omar Salim Rimawi were both shot and critically wounded on February 18, 2016 after claims of carrying out a stabbing attack Rami Levi supermarket in the Shaare Benyamin industrial complex inside an illegal Israeli settlement.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri said at the time that two Palestinians had “infiltrated” the Israeli settlement and entered the supermarket.

Both were 14 when they were shot and seriously wounded. Al-Rimawi succumbed to his wounds later on after his detention and Sabbah survived.

In November 2016, an Israeli court sentenced the 14-year-old Palestinian boy Ahmad Manasrah to 12 years in prison over claims of taking part, along with his cousin of the same age, in a stabbing attack against illegal Israeli settlers.

Both were shot and seriously wounded by the Israeli occupation forces. His cousin succumbed to his wounds and he survived.
