Palestinian injured woman sentenced to 3 years in prison


The Israeli Ofer court sentenced a wounded Palestinian woman to three years in prison for attempting to carry out a stabbing attack nearly a year earlier in the southern occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil.

According to family sources on Monday, the Ofer military court on Sunday convicted Abla al-Adam, 45, of attempting to stab an Israeli soldier on Dec. 20, 2015 in the Old City of al-Khalil.

Al-Adam, a mother of nine, was brought to court in very difficult health condition as she was unable to stand by herself.

She was shot all over body and seriously injured in her head and eye during her arrest.

Since then she had undergone several surgeries in the Hadassah medical center.

She is currently held in HaSharon prison in very unbearable conditions, the family added.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 7,000 Palestinians are currently detained in Israeli jails including 64 women.
