Settlement Youths Who Attacked Israeli Cops Going To Prison

JERUSALEM — Six youths from a West Bank settlement were sentenced to eight months in prison for attacking Israeli security forces.

The Yitzhar residents, four of whom are minors, were sentenced Thursday in Lod District Court after accepting a plea bargain on charges of rock throwing, vandalism and disrupting police work, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The attacks took place in the summer of 2013, the newspaper reported, citing the Justice Ministry.

The attacks, which the court labeled as “ideological,” also included aiming burning tires at security forces on patrol.

The court called the prison term a “necessary deterrent” against such incidents in the future, The Jerusalem Post reported.
