Outpost Defenders Begin 3-Month Sentence

Effi Haikin and Akiva HaCohen begin serving a 3-month sentence Wednesday for gathering information on movement of security forces in advance of Yesha outpost demolitions and coordinating protests on location in the nick of time, even in the middle of the night.

The pair say they are innocent of espionage charges, as protest in a democracy is a legitimate civil right.
