Community Service in 'Spying on the Army' Case

A district court imposed a sentence of 220 hours of community service and three months probation, Thursday, on El'ad Meir and David Tzvi Eliyahu, two of five defendants in a case of informing residents of Judea and Samaria about troop movements in order to prevent the military from carrying out evictions and demolitions in Judea and Samaria (Shomron), more than a year ago. They were convicted of conspiracy to gather information of military value under a plea bargain.

About two weeks ago, the other three defendants in the case were sentenced to three months behind bars. Two of them started serving their terms last week. The third was already behind bars for violating terms of his house arrest.
