The Palestinian man who stabbed and wounded a soldier in Afula last year was sentenced to 17.5 years by the Nazereth District Court on Tuesday, Israel Radio reported.

Judges determined that Tarak Yahya, a 21-year old resident of the West Bank city Jenin, expressed remorse for the attack, he did not back away from the ideological motivation which led him to try and kill Israelis.

In addition to his sentence, judges ordered Yahya pay the wounded soldier NIS 40,000 in compensation.
