An Arab convicted of threatening Likud MK Yehuda Glick will serve two months in jail and be fined NIS 10,000 ($2,800) following a plea bargain.

The defendant, Zaid Iyad, was convicted in the military court in Judea of ​​threats and insults against MK Glick after he sent a threatening message from his personal Facebook account to MK Glick's Facebook page.

The threatening message sent to MK Glick included a picture of Mu'taz Hijazi, the terrorist who tried to assassinate MK Glick two years ago and seriously wounded him.

On Facebook, Zaid added another picture of a video clip of Palestinian Arab terrorists assassinating MK Glick on the threshold of his home in Otniel.

As part of the announcement, Zaid wrote: "Do you remember this scene?" Also on Zid's Facebook page appeared a photograph showing the defendant holding a weapon.

Iyad also received an eight month suspended sentence as part of the plea bargain.

MK Glick, who gave his consent to the plea bargain, said, "The incitement and the threats in the social networks are terrorism in every respect. I thank the IDF, the Israel Police, and the law enforcement system for the quick treatment."
