Supreme Court increases sentence of brothers who set fire to Jewish-Arab school in Jerusalem

Israel’s Supreme Court granted the state’s appeal on Sunday morning and increased the sentence of two brothers who carried out an arson attack on a bilingual Jewish Arab school in Jerusalem.

The arson attack on Jerusalem’s integrated Max Rayne Hand in Hand School took place in November 2014.

In July of 2015 the Jerusalem District Court sentenced Nahman and Shlomo Twito, aged 18 and 22, to  two and two and a half years respectively for setting fire to the school in southern Jerusalem.
