A military court in Judea on Tuesday convicted Palestinian Waal Al-Arjeh of manslaughter for intentionally killing Asher Palmer, 25, and his infant son Yonatan, on September 23, 2011, according to the IDF.

Palmer and his son were driving near the Kiryat Arba settlement next to the Halhoul junction on Route 60, when Arjeh and an accomplice Ali Saadeh drove next to them in a taxi.

They threw a large stone at Palmer's car from their moving taxi, cracking Palmer's windshield and causing his vehicle to overturn.

Arjeh was also convinced of 25 incidents of attempted manslaughter for similarly throwing stones at moving Israeli vehicles, according to the IDF.
