The Jerusalem District Court has accepted the plea bargain of Jamal Tamimi, the Muslim terrorist from the Tamimi clan of jihadists who murdered 20-year-old British student Hannah Bladon in a stabbing attack on the Jerusalem light rail two years ago.
He will be sentenced to 18 years in prison and will be granted an exemption from reparations to the family of the murdered girl.
60-year-old Muslim terrorist Jamil Tamimi murdered theology student Hannah Bladon in a frenzied knife terror attack on the Jerusalem light rail in April 2017, after the 20-year-old gave up her seat on a tram to a woman with a baby.
The murderous terrorist stabbed Hannah multiple times before an off-duty policeman pulled the emergency brake and subdued him.
Tamimi’s defense team claimed he suffered from a mental illness, and the attack was not ideologically or politically motivated, despite the fact that a court ruled, following a psychiatric evaluation, that he is fit to stand trial and should be treated as a terrorist by the justice system.
Bladon was an exchange student at Hebrew University from the University of Birmingham. Her family has described her as a caring woman who was an enthusiastic rugby player and serving member of her church.
Maurice Hirsch, her family’s representative, said he was disappointed her murderer would not be serving a life sentence for his crime. But he added, “no sentence would have been able to return Hannah.”
