2 Israelis Sentenced for 2014 Murder of Palestinian Teenager

JERUSALEM — An Israeli court sentenced two Israelis on Thursday for the 2014 murder of a 16-year-old Palestinian, sending one to life in prison for a crime that prompted deep soul-searching in Israel and that was part of a series of events that led to the Gaza war that year.

The court sentenced the second Israeli, believed to have had a lesser role in the crime, to 21 years in prison. A verdict for a third Israeli has been delayed pending a psychological examination.
