Jerusalem (JTA) — Three con-
victed members of a Jewish ter-
rorist underground received
mandatory life sentences for
murder this week. Twelve others
drew sentences ranging from four
months to seven years imprison-
ment on a variety of lesser ac-
counts, all involving acts of vio-
lence against Arab residents of
the West Bank and conspiracy to
blow up Islamic shrines in East
The sentences, pronounced by a
three-judge panel in Jerusalem
District Court Monday, marked
the end of one of the most controv-
ersial and politically explosive
trials in Israel's history. They
triggered new demands for par-
don from rightwing politicians
and nationalist and religious
elements. All of the defendants
are Orthodox Jews.
Three three sentenced to life
are Menachem Livni, leader of the
underground, Uziyahu Sharbat
and Shaul Nir. They were found
guilty of murder for their parting
machinegun and grenade attack
on the Islamic College in Hebron
in which three Palestinian stu;
dents were killed.
There were originally 27defen-
dants when the trial began more
than a year ago. Ten were sen-
tenced in the course of the legal
process as a result of plea-
bargaining with the State Pro-
secutor. Two Israel Defense Force
(IDF) officers will be tried sepa-
rately and are free on bail.
Four of the men sentenced ear'
fier have already appealed for
clemency and the 15 sentenced
Monday are expected to do
