An Israeli military court on Sunday sentenced a former military
leader of Hamas to multiple life sentences after convicting him of
ordering the killing of dozens of Israelis, the army said.
"The Ofer military court sentenced Ibrahim Hamed to 54 life
sentences," a statement said, referring to an Israeli court and
prison complex located in the West Bank between Jerusalem and
"Hamed, who was the head of the military wing of Hamas in the West
Bank, was convicted last week of responsibility for a long list of
suicide attacks which brought about the deaths of 46 Israelis and the
wounding of more than 400 Israelis," the army statement said.
