A Gazan terror group operative who carried out a string of terrorist offenses against Israel will go to prison for 35 years, the Beersheba District Court ruled on Monday.

According to the indictment, in 2003 Mohammed Mehera joined the al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees.

Mehera planted explosives against IDF forces, fired rockets into Israel, and transferred information about IDF forces, which his operators used to carry out a 2004 terror attack that killed IDF soldier St. Sgt. Gilad Fisher and wounded three others.
