Life sentence for 'The Jewish Terrorist'
Text size Aa Aa

A Jerusalem court has given a life sentence to a man dubbed ‘The Jewish Terrorist’ for killing two Palestinians in 2007.

Yaakov ‘Jack’ Tytell, 40, who moved to Israel from the United States, also planted bombs in 2008 that injured two Jews who follow the teachings of Jesus.

Tytell confessed to killing a Palestinian taxi driver in Jerusalem and a shepherd near the West Bank city of Hebron.

He claims to have acted alone and to not belong to any anti-Arab Jewish underground organisation.
