The Salem Military Court on Wednesday convicted Palestinian Mohammad Maroh Kabaha for the murder of Esther Horgen on December 20, 2020 following his confession.
According to the indictment filed in February, Kabaha planned the attack some six weeks in advance. 
One reason was to avenge the death of his friend Camal Abu Wae’r – a Palestinian prisoner who fell sick and died in jail.
Looking for a place to carry out an attack, Kabaha allegedly went through a hole in the security barrier, and found that a number of Israelis took strolls in the Reihan forest.
On December 20, while smuggling cigarettes in the forest near the fence, he spotted an Israeli woman, Horgen, walking alone.

When their eyes met, she tried to run and scream, but he caught up to her after a race of about 15 meters and threw her to the ground.
Next, he allegedly smashed her head repeatedly with a large rock until she was dead.
Following this, he went home, showered, changed his clothes and fled into the hills.
The Horgen family and their lawyer, former IDF West Bank chief prosecutor Maurice Hirsch both praised the conviction but slammed the Palestinian Authority saying that it has created an atmosphere of incitement that encouraged Kabaha to commit the murder.
