Israeli Ringleader Found Guilty

Israeli Ringleader Found Guilty

The Israeli ringleader in the killing of a Palestinian youth, abducted and burned to death in Jerusalem in 2014, has been convicted of his murder. A Jerusalem court found 31-year-old Yosef Haim Ben David guilty, rejecting a plea of insanity. He will be sentenced next month.
Two youths have already been jailed for murdering Mohammad Abu Khdair, 16, BBC reported. He was killed in apparent revenge for the murders of three Israeli teens in the occupied West Bank.
Mohammad Abu Khdair's body was found in a forest in West Jerusalem on 2 July 2014, two days after the bodies of the Israelis abducted and murdered that June were found. The killings were part of an escalating cycle of violence, culminating in a war between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza. Ben David's lawyer had submitted a psychiatric opinion which stated his client had not been responsible for his actions at the time of the murder.
His accomplices, who were aged 17 and 16 at the time of the high-profile killing, were jailed for life and 21 years respectively.
