An Israeli settler was convicted on Monday by the the Lod District Court of murdering three Palestinian family members in an arson attack in the West Bank in 2015.
Amiram Ben Uliel, 25, was found guilty of murder, attempted murder, arson and conspiracy to commit a racially motivated crime planning.
The Dawabsheh family lawyer said they «are pleased with the court's decision but we are... Еще disappointed that he was not convicted on membership in a terror organisation [charges] as it should have been. It is not a single person, it is a group of people that are hurting Palestinians regularly.».
Relative of the victims, Hussein Dawabsheh, suggested the verdict would prevent further crimes in the zone: «No one will bring back my grandchild and daughter, I don't want another child to live like Ahmad my grandchild. We passed a terrible trauma for five years and I don't want another family to experience that.»
Some verbal confrontations occurred outside the court between supporters of Uliel and those who came to support the victims.
The arson attack that took place in 2015 had mortally injured Saad and Riham Dawabsheh and killed their 18-month-old son, Ali. His four-year-old brother Ahmed, managed to escape with severe burns.
