Terrorist Gets Life Sentence

A 23-year-old Arab resident of Nablus on the West Bank was sentenced today by a military court to life imprisonment for terrorist actions which caused the deaths of four people and injuries to 82 others. The court was told he had received military training by the Fatah in 1976 and in 1978 had planted a bomb in Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market which killed one person and wounded 51. A year later he planted another bomb in the same place, killing three and injuring 31. The terrorist admitted to the actions.
