IDF: Harsher sentence for man who killed activist

The army prosecution appealed on Tuesday to the military court of appeals, demanding a heavier punishment for Taisir el-Haib, who was convicted of killing international activist Tom Hurandl in Rafiah in 2003. El-Haib was sentenced to eight years in jail and the prosecution is currently asking for a 20-year sentence. Prosecutor Maj. Ronen Shor wrote that Hurandl posed no threat to el-Haib and that the soldier had shot him without cause.
