One of Rehavam Ze'evi's murderers sentenced to life plus 20 years

The Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday sentenced Bassel Assmar, one of the murderers of long-time parliamentarian and former minister Rehavam Ze'evi, to life in prison plus 20 years. Assmar was also convicted of attempted murder - for several other terror attacks - and of belonging to a terror organization, the PFLP. Other members of the cell that killed Ze'evi were also recently sentenced after they were whisked from a Palestinian prison in Jericho by the IDF and taken to Israel to stand trial.
