A year after American-Israeli killed prison guard, prison commanders face punishment

Almost a year after an inmate used a smuggled pistol to go on a shooting spree at Rimonim Prison, the facility’s commander and deputy commander have been removed from their posts as part of disciplinary actions carried out by the Israel Prison Service.

The IPS said Thursday that the two commanders are among a total of 16 IPS employees who face disciplinary action following the incident on February 23rd, 2014, when Samuel Sheinbein, an American-Israeli dual citizen and convicted murder opened fire on guards with a pistol he had smuggled into the prison and stashed in his cell.

Sheinbein, 34, was shot dead during the stand-off, and several prison guards were shot by the inmate, including one who was seriously wounded.
