Official PA daily: All Israelis are either settlers or soldiers

Headline: “Four hundred and ninety-one prisoners sentenced to life sentences in the occupation’s prisons”

“The number of prisoners detained by the occupation and sentenced to life sentences rose to 491 after the occupation courts published verdicts of life sentence against prisoners Bilal Abu Ghanem (terrorist who murdered 3 with an accomplice -Ed.) from Jerusalem and Ragheb Aliwi (led group that murdered 2 parents in front of their children -Ed.) from Nablus. Life imprisonment is a sentence of imprisonment for life, which according to the occupation’s definition is 99 years. The occupation imposes it on security prisoners accused of killing Israelis, whether they were settlers or soldiers, and on those responsible for orchestrating Martyrdom-seeking operations that led to the killing of Jews.”
