HAIFA, Israel — Four Israeli Arabs from the Haifa area in northern Israel were given life sentences Friday for the 1982 rape and murder of a Jewish woman soldier.

Kamel Sbechi and his brother Mohammed, their cousin Attaf Sbechi and Ahmed Kuzli had pleaded not guilty.

A panel of three judges convicted them of the gang rape and murder of Dafna Carmon, 21, seized near her home on Haifa's Mount Carmel on June 11, 1982, five days after Israel's invasion of Lebanon.

The trial brought renewed calls for the automatic death penalty in cases of guerrilla killings.
