The Haifa District court sentences Wisam Abu al-Hasana to life in prison and an additional five months for the murder of a 17-year-old boy in December 2019.

Al-Hasna, a Gaza native, was living illegally in Israel when he kidnapped Adel Khatib from Shfaram, killed him and buried his body in a pit outside a school in Shfaram’s Ein Afiya neighborhood.
