Tali Fahima, the Tel Aviv woman who befriended Jenin's Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades head Zakariya Zubeidi, was released Wednesday from prison after the Prison Services parole board cut short her sentence. Fahima, whose case became a cause celebre throughout the country, was sentenced to three years imprisonment on charges of providing information to the enemy in order to assist him, contact with a foreign agent and violation of a legal order. She was arrested on August 8, 2004 on her way to Jenin. A year earlier, she had befriended Zubeidi. During one of her subsequent visits, the army raided Jenin in an attempt to arrest Zubeidi and other terrorist leaders.
