Itongadol.- The Samaria Military Court on Sunday convicted Salam Azal of the murder of Evyatar Borovsky, father of five, at the Tapuah Junction in April.
Sophia Borovsky, Evyatar\’s widow, responded to the conviction, stating, "The law for an abominable murderer is death. Period."
"That is the only punishment which is fitting for this kind of an act," she said.
"In recent days it is known that Netanyahu and his government are preparing to release Arabs who are murderers that spilled the blood of Jews," she said, concluding that such actions by the government sent the message that "Jewish blood is for free."
According to a statement by the IDF, Azal was convicted based on a confession to the crimes.
The IDF statement also said that arguments regarding Azal\’s punishment would take place in September.
Borovsky, from the settlement of Yitzhar, was stabbed to death in a terror attack at the Tapuah Junction in Samaria in April, in what was at the time the first lethal terror attack in the West Bank since 2011.
Following the murder, settlers rioted and attacked both Palestinians and Israeli security forces in the West Bank.
Azal, came up from behind the victim, Evyatar Borovsky, stabbed him in the chest and stomach, and stole his firearm. A Border Police officer who witnessed the attack opened fire on the terrorist and moderately wounded him. He was taken from the scene to Beilinson Medical Center in Petah Tikva for treatment, while Borovsky was treated at the scene but died of his wounds.
Capt. Barak Raz of the IDF’s Judea and Samaria Division told The Jerusalem Post at the time that it had been more than a year since an Israeli was killed by terrorism in the West Bank, despite some violent incidents.
“This reminds us that even in times of relative calm, the alertness and quick response by security forces are very necessary. We are working 24 hours a day to maintain this stability,” he added.
