After more than five and a half years: the driver of the squad that murdered Raziel Shevach, HY"D, in January 2018 was sentenced to life imprisonment and 26 years in prison. Lawyer Haim Bleicher from the Honenu organization: "A terrorist has no place on earth and it would be better if the State of Israel ordered that these terrorists will not remain alive."

The military court in Salem this morning (Thursday) sentenced the terrorist Ahmed Jamal Ahmed Konba, who was driving the vehicle of the terrorist squad, which murdered Raziel Shevach, HY"D, in an attack near the Gilad farm in 2018, to life imprisonment and 26 years in prison. The terrorist must pay 1,500,00 NIS in compensation to Shevach's family.

Attorney Haim Bleicher from the Honenu organization who accompanied Raziel's family said: "This is a vile terrorist who was part of a unit that carried out many attacks. Such a terrorist has no place on earth, and it would be better for the State of Israel to make sure that these terrorists do not remain alive. In any case, according to the verdict, the damned terrorist will sit in prison until the day he dies."

Raziel Shevach's father: "Our whole world is destroyed"

Bleicher continued: "We appeal to the authorities to act so that this cursed terrorist along with his fellow murderers will not receive any favorable conditions in prisons other than the minimum required by law. We are in the midst of a severe wave of terrorism against the citizens of Israel and there is a great effect on deterrence by sentencing the terrorists to a life of suffering. The time has come to resort to a total worsening of the conditions of the terrorists in prison."

As remembered from the course of the discussion, Raziel's father, Moshe Shevach, stated: "I advised my family not to attend in order not to reopen the wounds they experienced from that day." Shevach continued during the discussion, "Our entire world was destroyed. The children, including my wife, are undergoing treatments and medication. We are trying to carry on with life, of course, which is not feasible."

"We will of course demand the death penalty because he is a son of death. We have no doubt that this wish will not be granted according to the policy that we know is practiced in the courts and we will ask that he be at least given a life sentence and that the highest penalty be imposed on him." Raziel's widow, Yael Shevach, also said at the hearing: "It is fitting that he should not remain among the living."
