On Sunday, the military court sentenced terrorist Mu'ad Hamed to two life sentences, convicted by his own admission of intentional manslaughter (the equivalent offense to murder in Judea and Samaria) for causing the death of Malachi Rosenfeld on June 29, 2015. In addition, the court ruled that the defendant must pay compensation to the family of the deceased and the victims of the crime in a total amount of NIS 90 million and 29,2015.
"The defendant was convicted of establishing a military squad on behalf of the Hamas terrorist organization with the aim of carrying out attacks against Israeli targets, and planning, together with other squad members, to carry out a shooting attack," the IDF Spokesperson said this morning, adding: "In this context, on June 2015, <>, The defendant fired at a private vehicle with four Israeli passengers inside. Malachi Rosenfeld was murdered in this attack and other vehicle occupants were wounded. The defendant was also prosecuted for another shooting attack in June <>."
The defendant was detained by the Palestinian Authority from July 2015 until April 2022. He was arrested by security officials in early April last year, tried and has been detained in an Israeli prison ever since.
Hamed was convicted in 2012 of conspiracy to shoot at security forces and sentenced to 12 months in prison. In 2014 he was held in administrative detention for being a Hamas operative.
Members of the cell established by the accused, with the exception of one, were tried several years ago. Two of the squad members were sentenced to life imprisonment and another to life imprisonment and 30 years. Another squad member escaped and has not been arrested at this time.
