(Times of Israel) Judah Ari Gross - An Israeli military court convicted five family members of the terrorist who stabbed to death three Israelis in Halamish last month of failing to prevent the attack, the army said Sunday. According to the Judea Regional Court, Omar al-Abed's family members "knew of his intention to carry out the attack and did not work to inform the security services as needed to prevent it." Two of his brothers and an uncle were sentenced to eight months in prison. His father, who had told Ha'aretz that his son's actions were understandable, was sentenced to two months. His mother, who was also found guilty of incitement for praising her son's actions in a widely shared video, was sentenced to one month.
