Court convicts Israeli in Palestinian teenager's 2014 murder

US Recall News Posted on

A Jerusalem district court has convicted the main suspect in the July 2014 murder of a Palestinian teenager.

The court convicted 30-year-old Yosef Haim Ben David on Tuesday of murder, rejecting a plea that he was not responsible for his actions. Ben David is to be sentenced next month and could face life in prison.

Two other Israelis have already been sentenced for their roles in the murder of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir in revenge for the death of three abducted Israeli teens earlier that summer. The Israelis snatched Khdeir from an east Jerusalem neighborhood, drove him to a Jerusalem forest and burned him to death.

The gruesome killing sparked deep outrage in Israel and was part of a series of events that helped spark the Gaza war later that summer.
