Ministers approve bill to punish terrorists under age 14

Legislation allowing courts to sentence minors under age 14 to a future prison sentence for manslaughter or murder was approved by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation Sunday.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked proposed the bill after terrorists after 12 and 13-year-old Palestinian cousins stabbed a Jerusalem Light Rail security guard in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood in November.
