An Israeli court sentenced on Monday 14-year-old Palestinian boy to 12 years in prison over an alleged stabbing attack carried out in October last year.
The boy, named by Palestinian officials as Ahmed Manasra, is accused of carrying out an attack in an illegal Israeli settlement north of Jerusalem along with his 15-year-old cousin.
He was 13 years old then. He was severely wounded and his cousin was shot and killed by an Israeli passerby and left bleeding without any medical help. Passerbys were heard in a video for the incident saying: “Leave him, sun of bitch, to die.”
The claimed attack, Israeli media said, seriously wounded a 12-year-old Israeli boy who was riding on his bicycle and lightly injured a man. Both have recovered.
At the time, the incident caused widespread controversy because the Palestinian authorities accused Israel of killing both Palestinian boys. They subsequently discovered that Manasra was still alive and being treated for his injuries in an Israeli hospital.
In passing sentence, the Jerusalem District Court barred the naming of the boy because he is a minor. But his identity has already been exposed by Israeli authorities and the Palestinian Prisoners’ Association issued a press release naming him.
Video footage leaked last November shows Israeli authorities hurling abuse at the then 13-year-old Manasra during interrogation.
The officer can he heard screaming at him, insulting him and trying to coerce him to confess, calling him a “liar”. Manasra was interrogated without the presence of a lawyer.
As a result, Mansara says: “I will say that I did this, but I do not remember. I will say that I did it, what more do you want from me?
