An Israeli military court has convicted a Palestinian Authority terrorist for the April murder of 31-year-old Eviatar Borovsky, who lived in the community of Itamar, in northeastern Samaria.
Zagal stabbed Borovsky to death as the father of five waited at a bus stop at the Tapuach Junction. Border Police officers shot and wounded Zagal at the scene of the attack.
The alleged killer was released from an Israeli jail eight months ago after serving three years for rock throwing.
“The proper sentence for a heinous murderer is death,” said Borovsky’s widow, Sophia,. “That is the only proper sentence for a deed such as this.
“I wish this base murderer a death of torment, but it is really useless to put him in jail, when one takes into account that he will be released in one (prisoner) swap or another, and will use his time there for academic studies free of charge, and the high standard of living that the state of Israel gives the murderers of its citizens.”
Zagal’s brother is jailed in the Palestinian Authority for collaborating with Israel.
