Military court convicts Palestinian of terror murder of Israeli man in 2015

A military court convicts a Palestinian terrorist over a deadly shooting attack in the West Bank in 2015.

Maad Hamed was part of a Hamas cell that killed Malachy Rosenfeld, 25, in a drive-by shooting on June 29, 2015.

Hamed is convicted of intentionally causing the death of Rosenfeld. The charge is equivalent to murder in the West Bank military court system.

He is also charged with a separate shooting attack during the same month, the Israel Defense Forces says. No ruling has been issued yet on this charge.

Hamed was arrested by the Palestinian Authority in July 2015, not long after the attack, and remained in its custody until April this year, when he was arrested by Israeli security forces.

Three others were wounded in the attack that killed Rosenfeld. The Hamas terrorists opened fire on their car near the West Bank settlement of Shvut Rachel, north of Ramallah, as they returned home from a basketball game.

Three members of the cell have already been given life sentences for the attack.
