The Jerusalem District court Wednesday sentenced Mu’aid Abu Rabba, from East Jerusalem, to four and-a- half years in prison for supporting the Islamic State, contacting a foreign agent anda conspiracy to conduct a terrorist attack in Israel. He was accused of trying to leave the country to join the Islamist terrorist group in Syria and when he failed, getting in touch with two Palestinians to organize an act of terror. Both his co-conspirators have been tried and convicted.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
