Fo­gel killer con­victed

The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY JEN­NIFER LIP­MAN

A PALES­TINIAN man has been con­victed of the bru­tal slaugh­ter of the Fo­gel fam­ily in the West Bank set­tle­ment of Ita­mar in March.

Hakim Awad’s vic­tims in­cluded three-month-old Hadas Fo­gel, two of her si­b­lings and her par­ents. Their blood­ied bod­ies were dis­cov­ered by 14-year-old Ta­mar Fo­gel when she re­turned late on a Fri­day night.

Awad, 18, con­fessed to the killings and was con­victed of five cases of mur­der and weapons and se­cu­rity of­fences. Ynet re­ported that he had told the court he was proud of what he did and had no re­grets. He is likely to be sen­tenced in Septem­ber. The trial of Am­jad Awad, be­lieved to be his co-con­spir­a­tor, has not con­cluded.
