RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli military court in Ofer on Friday sentenced the Palestinian young woman Haneyya Nasser, 20, to 28 months behind bars for allegedly attempting to stab an Israeli soldier.
Local sources in El-Bireh, the hometown of Haneyya, said that she was arrested on 12 September this year while crossing the Nilin roadblock when the soldiers manning the barrier claimed that she had a knife in her possession and that she tried to stab one of them.
The defense lawyer called for her release since she was a university student and no concrete evidence was found against her. However, the Israeli military prosecutor refused and passed the sentence along with a 2000 shekels fine.
