Shimshon Cytryn, 20, was let off of attempted murder charges Sunday and convicted of criminal assault, which is punishable by a jail sentence of up to 20 years. According to accusations, while Cytryn was in Gaza to protest the 2005 disengagement plan he and his friends threw rocks at Arabs and severely injured a youth. Cytryn was charged with throwing the rock that critically wounded the youth. However, footage of the incident could not ascertain beyond a reasonable doubt whether on not Cytryn had actually thrown the rock. In their ruling the judges also pointed out that, "had he wanted to, [Cytryn] could have completed the initially unsuccessful [murder] attempt."
