Yitzhak Gabai, a member of the banned Jewish Lehava group, given three years' jail for attack on Arabic-Hebrew Max Hayne school
A far-right Israeli has been jailed for three years for an arson attack on an Arabic-Hebrew bilingual school in Jerusalem.
Yitzhak Gabai, 23, was found guilty at the Jerusalem District Court of the November 2014 attack on the Max Hayne Hand-in-Hand school, where a first-grade classroom was badly damaged and slogans in Hebrew reading "Death to Arabs" and "There's no coexistence with cancer" were scrawled on the walls.
Prosecutors had recommended a sentence of between four and seven years for Gabai and said they planned to appeal, calling the jail term too light.
He was given two years for arson, 10 months for inciting violence on Facebook and two months for weapons possession.
The attack sparked a wave of condemnation and took place amid months of rising tensions and unrest in Jerusalem.
Gabai's accomplices, Nahman and Shlomo Twitto, 19 and 21, have already been sentenced to two and two-and-a-half-years in prison respectively.
Lehava activists follow the teachings of the late Meir Kahane, a virulently anti-Arab rabbi whose Kach party was banned in Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior officials condemned the attack at the school, which is on the Green Line separating west Jerusalem from the annexed eastern sector, and has 624 pupils.
