The Beersheba Magistrate's Court on Wednesday convicted two sisters of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh for illegally crossing into Gaza to visit him as part of a plea bargain.

The two – Tzav’ah Bat Abud Elsalem Haniyeh and Leila Bat Abud Elsalem Abu Rakik – had previously requested permission to cross into Gaza for the visit and Israel had denied their request.
