An Israeli Arab man was sentenced to five years and eight months in prison by the Petach Tikva District Court on Tuesday for spying on IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on behalf of Hizbullah.

The penalty also includes a three-year suspended sentence for Tira resident Rawi Sultani, 23, who had no criminal or security record.

Sultani, who worked out at the same Kfar Saba gym as Ashkenazi, was found guilty of giving Hizbullah information about the gym’s whereabouts and a breakdown of Ashkenazi’s security detail during his gym visits. His sentence follows a plea bargain reached between prosecutors and Sultani’s attorney and father Fouad Sultani.
