Fogel Murderer Gets Five Life Sentences

The Military Court in Samaria Tuesday sentenced one of the Arabs who murdered five members of one family in Samaria to five consecutive life sentences and an additional five years in jail.

Hakim Awad, 18, of Awarta, and his cousin Amjad, murdered Ehud Fogel (36), Ruth Fogel (35), and their children Yoav (11), Elad (4) and Hadas, who was 4 months old. They were stabbed to death in their home at Itamar on March 12.

Hakim Awad said he did not feel remorse and that he committed the murders "because of the occupation." The trial of his cousin Amjad, who was a minor at the time of the murder, is not yet over.
