The son of a leader of a West Bank Jewish human rights group was sentenced to prison for the kidnapping and assaulting of a Palestinian teen. Zvi Struk, 28, of the Esh Kodesh outpost near Shiloh, was sentenced Sunday in Jerusalem District Court to 18 months in prison. He also was sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to pay the victim more than $14,000. Struk, whose mother, Orit, heads the Yesha Human Rights Organization, was convicted in November of three counts of assault, battery under aggravated circumstances and kidnapping for the purpose of causing grave bodily injury, as well as one count of animal abuse for killing a lamb.
