The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday sentenced a resident of East Jerusalem to 2.5 years in prison Sunday for working to recruit Israelis and Palestinians on behalf of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror group and the Iranian army.
Yasmin Jaber, the 26-years-old resident of the Old City of Jerusalem and former staffer at the National Library in the capital, was apprehended in September last year by the Shin Bet domestic security agency along with several other acquaintances from East Jerusalem and Ramallah, who are suspected of having been involved in the secret cell.
During her trial, she pled guilty to being in contact with a foreign agent, membership in a terror organization and illegally leaving the country. She was also ordered by the judge to pay a fine of NIS 5,000.
