Tewnty-two-year-old Dawoud Massarawa was convicted Tuesday by the Petah Tikva District Court of illegal weapons trade and sentenced to 20 months in prison for selling a homemade pipe bomb in exchange for a NIS100 discount in the purchase of a mobile phone.

According to the ruling, Masarawa made the bomb for an acquaintance who wanted to boast with it before his friends. As part of the pea bargain, Massarawa confessed to having made the bomb, but denied any criminal or terrorist intent.
