Court convicts Arab Israeli for stabbing rabbi to death in terror attack

A court convicts an Arab Israeli man for stabbing to death a rabbi in a terror attack last year in the West Bank.

Abed al-Karim Assi attacked Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal last February at a bus stop outside the Ariel settlement before fleeing. He was arrested over a month later after an extensive manhunt in the Palestinian city of Nablus.

The Central District Court in Lod rules Assi is guilty of murder.
