Court sentences Jerusalem gas leak bomber to 30 years in prison

A three-judge panel of the Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday sentenced the infamous man who caused nine gas leaks to try to cause explosions to 30 years in prison.

Aziz Awisat was convicted of nine attempted murder crimes by his signature attempted gas leak attacks and one additional attempted murder crime from when he attacked a Haredi man with an axe in 2012, but only succeeded in badly wounding him.

The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office submitted an indictment against Awisat, a 49-year-old resident of the southeastern Jebal Mukaber neighborhood, regarding his terror activities in March 2014.
