Almost seven years after the murderous attack at the Nablus gate in Jerusalem, in which a terrorist squad killed the late Hadar Cohen, the military court today (Sunday) sentenced the accused Bilal Abu Zeid, who was convicted of the crime of intentionally causing death, the equivalent for murder in Yosh.
On top of that, Abu Zeid was convicted of the crime of attempting to cause death on purpose and other crimes.
This is for his part in the murder of the late Hadar Cohen in February 2016 and the wounding of another MGB fighter in the same attack.
The defendant was sentenced to life imprisonment and an additional 32 years in prison.

According to the ruling of the military court, the defendant did not go to the scene of the attack by himself, so that he could, as he said, "stay alive and kill Jews." His accomplices arrived at the Nablus gate in Jerusalem, where they shot to death the late Hadar Cohen female soldier, and wounded another female MGB female soldier. The military court accepted the position of the military prosecution, and convicted the terrorist of murder, after it was proven that he was a partner in planning the attack, provided his accomplices with weapons and on the day of the attack helped them reach Israel.

The defendant was sentenced to life in prison for intentionally causing the death of the female fighter, 25 years in prison for attempting to cause the death of the other female fighter, and another seven years in prison for the additional offenses of which he was convicted.
It was determined that the prison terms will be cumulative.
Along with this, a compensation amounting to one and a half million shekels was awarded to the family of the late Cohen, and a quarter of a million shekels to the other fighter who was injured in the attack.
