Israeli court releases settler suspected of killing Palestinian mother

May 8, 2019 10:35 A.M. (Updated: May 10, 2019 11:48 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court released the Israeli settler suspected of killing a Palestinian mother of eight, Aisha Muhammad Talal al-Rabi, near the Zaatara checkpoint in Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, on Tuesday.

Lod’s District Court ordered for the release of the Israeli settler and placed him under house arrest until further notice.

The Israeli settler, whose remained unidentified, was reported to be a student in a religious institute in Israel’s illegal Rechelim settlement.

Aisha Muhammad Talal al-Rabi, 47, a mother of eight children, from the Bidya village near Salfit in the northern occupied West Bank, was killed and her husband was injured, after Israeli settlers hurled rocks at their vehicle near the Zaatara checkpoint in Nablus in the northern West Bank on October 12th 2018.

Palestinian towns and villages in the Nablus area are surrounded by Israeli settlements and outposts, many of which are protected by the Israeli military and have gained notoriety for being comprised of the most extremist settlers.

However, the Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and violent acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.
