Faiz attacked Zmora with a knife, stabbing and seriously injuring her in a parking lot at the Gush Etzion Junction, shouting "Allahu Akbar".
Zamora, who had been stabbed in the back, was initially considered slightly wounded. By the time she was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem her condition worsened and she was seriously defined.
An eruption broke out when the Faiz trial began at the Ofer Military Court in May after the verdict was acquitted
the terrorist of an attempted murder, and sentenced him instead of an aggravated battery and the illegal possession of a knife.
Judges Lieutenant Colonel Zvi Heilbron, Lieutenant Colonel Eti Adar and Major Haim, who determined that it was not possible to prove that Faiz had intended to kill Zmora, and argued that he might have only intended to wound her.

"There was only one sting: the cases in which the court sentenced a defendant for murder or attempted murder for a single knife stab – even if the stabbing causes the victim's death – are rare," the judges said.
"The reason for this is the difficulty of establishing an intention to kill when only one stitch had occurred", the judges explained.
Last month, Faiz was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Attorney Haim Bleicher of the National Defense Organization, who accompanies Zamora and her family, criticized the decision not to sentence Faiz for attempted murder.
The terrorist will have to pay his victim NIS 500,000 as compensation.
"Just seeing the terrorist's smile when he heard the verdict was enough to understand the extent of the failure and the lack of deterrence," he exclaimed.
The MAG of the West Bank sent the military court an official letter setting out its intention to appeal against the above sentence, pointing out that it had to submit its comprehensive position within one month.
