Jail Time for Mob Slaying of ‘Jewish Terrorist’

The Haifa District Court has sentenced three men to two years in jail for the death of IDF soldier Eden Natan-Zada in 2005. Another two men were sentenced to prison time as well, while a sixth person was sentenced to probation. Eden Natan-Zada went AWOL from the army before shooting four people to death in a bus in the Israeli-Arab town of Shfaram. Witnesses said that Zada had opened fire indiscriminately.

Zada was disarmed and taken into police custody, but was beaten to death by an angry mob before he could be taken to a police station.
