2 Hamas figures who evaded arrest convicted of terror activity

The Jerusalem District Court convicted two senior Hamas figures, Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Khaled Abu Arafa and Palestinian Parliament Member Mohamed Tutach of belonging to a terror organization and residing in Israel illegally. The two admitted to the allegations as part of a plea bargain.


An indictment filed a week ago claimed that Abu Arafa and Tutach evaded arrest and engaged in terror-related activity with other Hamas members while staying in a protest tent in Jerusalem. (Aviel Magnezi)
