A Jerusalem court on Monday sentenced a Palestinian minor involved in a 2015 terrorist attack to 12 years in prison.

Ahmed Menasrah, who was 13 at the time of the attack, was sentenced in the Jerusalem District Court for carrying out a stabbing attack last October along with his teen cousin in the capital's Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood.

Now 14, Menasrah was also ordered to pay a NIS 180 fine in damages to the family of a Jewish boy whom the cousins had stabbed in the attack.

Both of the armed Palestinians stabbed the boy who had been on a bicycle multiple times before a motorist rammed into Menasrah, wounding and subduing him. Police shot and killed the other assailant who had also stabbed another Jewish man.
