Terrorist Who Murdered Yehuda Guetta in 2021 Gets Two Life Sentences

(Israel Hayom via JNS) An Israeli military court has sentenced Palestinian American Muntasir Ahmed Ali Shalabi to two life sentences for the murder of Yehuda Guetta, 19, in May 2021. The court also ruled that Shalabi must pay Guetta’s family 1 million shekels ($323,000).

Shalabi killed Guetta and wounded two other students in a drive-by shooting near Ariel in Samaria. He was convicted on August 3, 2021, of premeditated homicide, building and carrying weapons and interfering with legal proceedings.

Attorney Chayim Bleicher of the Honenu legal aid organization, who is representing Guetta’s family, said in response to the sentence: “The war on terrorism cannot end with criminal punishment alone. In a war, the enemy must be attacked in every possible arena.”

After Shalabi was convicted, Guetta’s father, Elisha, asked that he be sentenced to death.
