JNS.org – Husam Qawasmeh, the Palestinian terrorist who planned kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens Gil-ad Shaer, Naftali Frenkel and Eyal Yifrach last June, was convicted in a military court on Wednesday on all charges against him.

Qawasmeh admitted to planning the attack that was carried out on June 12 by Marwan Qawasmeh and Amer Abu Aisheh. The attack was funded by a 200,000 shekel ($51,000) transfer from Husam Qawasmeh’s brother, Mahmoud Qawasmeh, a Hamas operative who was released from Israeli prison in the 2011 Gilad Schalit swap deal and deported to the Gaza Strip.

Husam Qawasmeh admitted to purchasing the weapon used in the attack and also helping to bury the bodies of the murdered teens in a field north of Hebron. Additionally, he said he helped remove evidence from the burial site.
