Tel Aviv: Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by an Israeli settler convicted of life imprisonment in the 2015 firebombing of a Palestinian child and his parents.
In September 2020, the court sentenced 25-year-old Israeli Amirben Olil to three terms of life imprisonment in connection with these killings.
Israel’s Supreme Court judges rejected the appeal, citing Ben-Oleil’s “confession,” circumstantial evidence, and saying that Ben-Oleil’s actions were “contrary to all the moral values of Judaism,” adding that “other religions Hate and racism are not compatible with Judaism.”
He said that the horror of this crime cannot be described. It should be noted that in July 2015, 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha was burnt to death in a house fire in the village of Douma in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. His parents later succumbed to their injuries.
