(JNS) Khalil Jabarin was sentenced to life in prison by the Judea Military Court on Tuesday for fatally stabbing American-Israeli Ari Fuld and attempting to murder three other people at the Gush Etzion shopping area in September 2018.

The attack was caught on security cameras, showing an injured Fuld shooting and wounding Jabarin, who was looking for more victims. Fuld was posthumously awarded the Medal of Distinction by the Israel Police.

The court also ordered Jabarin to pay the Fuld family NIS 1.25 million ($368,125).

Fuld Attorney Maurice Hirsch said that the damages awarded made no sense because Jabarin would receive more from the Palestinian Authority, which provides monthly stipends to terrorists in Israeli prisons.

“The decision of the court is proof that terror pays,” said Hirsch.
