RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- An Israeli court sentenced a young Palestinian man to 16-and-a-half years in prison for injuring an Israeli in a mall in Israel in 2015, a Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) lawyer said on Monday.

According to Ruslan Muhajna, Tamer Yunis Wreidat, a 26-year-old resident of the village of al-Dhahiriya in the occupied West Bank district of Hebron, was also fined $26,000 for carrying out a stabbing attack at a mall in the Israeli town of Petah Tikva on Oct. 7, 2015.

One Israeli was lightly wounded in the attack.

Israeli courts have been sentencing Palestinians, including a number of minors, in past weeks over a number of attacks and alleged attacks which took place when a wave of unrest first emerged across the occupied territory and Israel in October 2015.

In the past month, Israeli courts have notably sentenced 17-year-old Nurhan Awwad to 13-and-a-half years in prison, and 14-year-old Ahmad Manasra to 12 years in prison.

According to Ma’an documentation, 241 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis since Oct.1, 2015, while 34 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians during the same time period.

Meanwhile, some 7,000 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of October, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.
