A Palestinian 17-year-old is sentenced by a military court to 19 years in prison for a stabbing attack on an Israeli civilian close to two years ago.

In January 2020, the teenager stabbed a 22-year-old man near the Tomb of Patriarchs in Hebron. The man received medical treatment on the scene for a stab injury to his shoulder and was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in stable condition.

The attacker then attempted to harm two other people nearby before being arrested.
