JERUSALEM — A man who stabbed a fellow Jewish-Israeli in a suburban Haifa parking lot after mistaking him for an Arab was sentenced to 11 years in prison for his attempted murder conviction.

Shlomo Pinto, of Kiryat Ata, was sentenced on Monday in Haifa District court for the attack, which took place in October 2015 in the IKEA parking lot.He also was ordered to pay his victim more than $13,000 in compensation.



Several Palestinian attacks on Israelis took place the day of the Pinto incident, including in the central Israeli city of Raanana. It took place at the start of a yearlong wave of attacks by Palestinians and Arab Israelis on Jews. Pinto initiated the attack in revenge for the previous Palestinian attacks.
