PA Resident - 5 Years Hard Labor for Spying for Israel


A Palestinian Authority court in Kalkilye sentenced a 51-year-old resident of the western Samarian (Shomron) city to five years at hard labor, Sunday, after he was convicted of spying for Israel, according to the PA's WAFA news agency.

The defendant admitted that he engaged in espionage for a long time and would monitor the movements of certain youth, as instructed. In some instances, his activities led to their arrest.
