The Supreme Court on Monday acquitted Haifa resident Felix Milner of attempted murder charges, nearly four years after he was convicted of participating in a shooting attack on Arab restaurants in the city. In the October 2000 incident, Milner's friend, Danny Tichman, opened fire at customers and passersby near predominantly Arab-owned kiosks and cafes on Rehov Yaffo in revenge for the lynching of two IDF reservists by a Palestinian mob in Ramallah. Four people, three Jews and an Arab, were wounded, one of them seriously. Milner, who drove Tichman to the scene, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted on four counts of attempted murder and nine counts of deliberately causing damage. However, a panel of three judges reduced Milner's sentence to only three years on Monday after deciding that he had only aided in the crime. He was expected to be released immediately.
