Ofer military court on Wednesday handed two life sentences to the Palestinian prisoner Malek Hamed who is a resident of Silwad town to the east of Ramallah.
MivzakLive website said that Hamed was convicted of carrying out a car-ramming attack in which an Israeli soldier was killed and three others were injured near Ofra settlement in April 2017.
The Hebrew website added that Hamed was also ordered to pay a financial compensation worth 280,000 shekels ($800,000) to the family of the dead soldier and to another soldier who sustained moderate injuries in the attack.
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested Hamed on 6th April 2017 after he carried out an anti-occupation car-ramming attack near Ofra settlement built by force on Palestinian lands to the northeast of Ramallah.
In August 2017, the IOF demolished Hamed’s family’s house in a collective punishment campaign launched against the families of the Palestinians accused of carrying out attacks against the Israelis.
