Israeli teenager charged with killing Palestinian woman in stone attack

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

RAMALLAH – Israeli court has charged a 16-year-old Jewish seminary student with the manslaughter of a Palestinian woman who died after a stone was thrown at her car in October.

Aisha Rabi, a 47-year-old mother-of-eight, was driving through the occupied West Bank when her car was targeted in what prosecutors called a terrorist act motivated by hostility towards Arabs.

She was hit in the head when the stone smashed through the car’s windshield. The stone went through the windshield on the passenger’s side and struck Rabi in the head. Her husband rushed her to a nearby clinic but she was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

The unnamed student, who denies the charge, has been remanded in custody.
