The Magistrate's Court in Nazareth sentenced this morning (Thursday) three months of community service to Lilach Amsalem, who was convicted of confessing to assaulting four toddlers in the kindergarten where she worked as an assistant in Afula about two and a half years ago.



The assistant was documented on the kindergarten cameras hitting the toddlers' heads, pinching some of them, pulling at their hair and pulling them from their hand.

Despite this, Judge Dalit Sharon-Green ruled that she would not want actual imprisonment.

The parents of the toddlers who were attacked by Amsalem were furious at the sentence. "No one can understand what happened to us from the moment we understood what she was doing. She smashed the child for me," said Adia Menashko, a mother of a toddler in kindergarten. "I knew there would be no severe punishment, but three months of service work? I did not expect that. I'm just disappointed with the justice system that this is the message it is passing on, about anyone who harms children."



Yossi Hevra, director of the headquarters of the fight against early childhood abuse, attacked the decision: "It is difficult to define the court ruling as punishment, the assistant was convicted of shocking assaults. "Three months of service work. It's shocking and it must change. Shame on the justice system and the prosecutor's office in the north."

According to the facts of the indictment, in which Amsalem admitted, on one occasion she hit the toddler "R" in the head while sitting in a dining chair.

In another case she lifted the toddler "A" while pulling at his hair that was gathered in his ponytail, forcibly sat him on the floor, aggressively grabbed his chin and tilted his head.



On two other occasions, the defendant pulled the toddler's hand "or", thus lifting it in the air from one side of the room to the other, and pinching Ag's cheek, lifting her while pulling her hand and leading her aggressively from one side of the room to the other.
