Muhammad Maruh Kabha, the terrorist who murdered Mrs. Esther Horgan, Hy”d, last year, was convicted Wednesday by the Salam Camp military court.
Mrs. Horgan, a mother of six from Tal Menashe in the Shomron, was 52 years old when she was brutally killed last December in the Reihan forest.
Kabha was arrested four days after he killed Horgan and was indicted on Feb. 4. He has admitted to the murder.
According to the indictment, Kabha decided to carry out a terror attack to avenge the death of a friend in an Israeli prison.
Responding to the conviction, the Horgan family said, “We are happy that the terrorist was convicted by his own admission today in court. This step greatly advances us towards the end of the legal process, which has already gone on for too long.
“The terrorist must be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and to rot behind bars until the end of his life.”
