Security cameras at the Gan Ha'ir parking lot, where Ahmed Bani Jaber raped a 17-year-old girl in front of her boyfriend last year, documented the arrival of the young couple to the lot, the Palestinian following them and later leaving the premises.
The video was featured Wednesday in Israel's Channel 10 News, after Tel Aviv Disctrict Court sentenced Jaber to 30 years in prison earlier Tuesday.

As part of a plea bargain, Jaber pleaded guilty to multiple counts of aggravated rape and aggravated sodomy. The court also ordered Jaber, a Nablus resident who had been living in Israel illegally, to pay the complainant and her boyfriend NIS 250,000 ($69,000) each in restitution.
The rape took place in May 2012, as the victim and her 17-year-old boyfriend entered the Gan Ha'ir parking lot, where their car was parked, at around 3:30 am. The attacker ambushed the two and threatened them with a blunt object, forcing them into a nearby public bathroom, where he raped and abused them.
