Youngest Girl Terrorist Held In Israel Released After Just 2.5 Months

Arutz Sheva reports: Israel on Sunday released a 12-year-old Arab terrorist, the youngest female terrorist jailed in Israel, after a paltry two-and-a-half months in prison despite her attempt to murder Jews.

The terrorist girl, Dima al-Wawi, was jailed on February 9 when she tried to conduct a stabbing attack. She was caught by security forces with a knife in her possession on the outskirts of Karmei Tzur in Gush Etzion, Judea.

In investigation, al-Wawi admitted that she intended to conduct an attack and murder Jews.

While Israeli law does not allow jail time for terrorists under the age of 14, al-Wawi as a non-citizen resident of Judea and Samaria was tried by a military court which can try terrorists as young as 12.

However, due to her age she was sentenced to only half-a-year in jail for attempted murder and illegal possession of a knife, and that sentence was later reduced to four-and-a-half months.
