Palestinian gets 10 years for shooting Israelis
COPENHAGEN - A Danish court on Friday sentenced a Palestinian man to 10 years for the shooting of two Israelis in a Danish shopping mall on New Year’s Eve 2008, judicial authorities said.
Wissam Freiijeh, a 28 year-old Palestinian born in a refugee camp in Lebanon but who has lived in Denmark since the age of seven, admitted to a court in the city of Odense that he shot at a cosmetics stand held by three Israelis, hurting two of them in the arm and the leg.
Freiijeh told the court he shot at the men, who sold products made with Dead Sea minerals, because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Jewish State’s three-week offensive in Gaza which was launched in December 2008.
“Israelis have taken everything from me, killed my relatives, taken their land and houses. I only have one aunt left,” he said.
He added he had not intended to kill the victims, who survived. Two Danish customers who were at the cosmetics stand during the shooting were not hurt.
