A Palestinian court sentenced a man to death on Tuesday for selling land in the West Bank to Israelis. The court in Hebron sentenced the man, Anwat Breghit, 59, to death by hanging after finding him guilty of treason and of “selling Palestinian land to Israelis.” The indictment says he sold property in the village of Beit Omar to Israelis from the Jewish settlement of Karmei Tzur. The sentence requires the approval of President Mahmoud Abbas in order to be carried out.
