JNS.orgThe Tel Aviv District Court on Monday sentenced 20-year-old Tayibe resident Mohammed Mafarja to 25 years in jail for placing an explosive device on a Tel Aviv bus in November 2012, an attack that wounded 24 people.

Mafarja placed an explosive on Bus 142, got off the bus near the Diamond Exchange in Ramat Gan, and minutes later, an accomplice detonated the device via cellphone as the bus traveled west on Shaul Hamelech Street in Tel Aviv.

As part of a plea bargain, Mafarja was convicted of attempted murder, carrying out actions with intent to aid an enemy, and causing an explosion that resulted in severe injuries.
