The committee added, in a statement, that Manasra was also sentenced to pay a fine of 10,000 shekels ($3,000).
Israeli forces had detained Manasra mid-2015 after he had allegedly attacked and injured an Israeli soldier at Beit Einun crossroads, in eastern Hebron City (Al-Khalil) in the southern occupied West Bank.

The committee condemned the sentence and the exorbitant financial compensation imposed on Manasra and other political prisoners in Israeli jails.
The committee added that “This proves the barbarity of the fake Israeli judiciary which goes hand in hand with the policies of the Israeli intelligence, aiming to inflict the greatest damage and sanctions on the Palestinians.”
