Gaza terrorist gets 18 years for firing rockets

March 18, 2013 21:20

Gaza terrorist Khaled Silawi was sentenced by the Beersheba District Court on Monday to eighteen years in prison for firing rockets at Israel.

Silawi was also convicted of spying on Israeli military positions on the Gaza border to plan future attacks.

Silawi, 21, was convicted as part of a plea bargain agreement in which he admitted to the charges.

He started his involvement in terrorism when he met a man who called himself "Abu Said," commander of a unit of the Popular Resistance Committees, in 2007.

 Silawi was involved in a fifteen day "training course" for weapons training and other fighting against Israel along with 60 other terrorists, all of who wore masks during the training.
