23-year-old Arab Sentenced to 25 Years for Role in Hebrew U. Cafeteria Bombing

An Israeli court yesterday sentenced an Israeli Arab to 25 years imprisonment for his part in an explosion in the Hebrew University cafeteria early this year. Adnan Hassan el Yehli, 23, a student at the university, from a Galilee village, was identified as the man who proposed the site of the bombing. He allegedly brought an Arab girl, Mariam Sharshir, who has been sentenced to life imprisonment, to the site for an early reconnaissance and then returned with her when she brought the bomb. He allegedly waited for her outside the cafeteria and then took her to East Jerusalem.
