Lebanon Jails Palestinian for Spying for Israel
A Beirut military court on Friday sentenced a former Palestinian DFLP official to 15 years in prison for spying for Israel.
The official reportedly became a spy for Israel after being held for 11 years in the Jewish state, and later spent six years in a Syrian prison.
Lebanese judicial sources were quoted by Lebanon.com news wires as saying that Khaled Mahmoud Yassin, 57, was handed over to Lebanese authorities in December 2000 among some 50 Lebanese and Palestinians who had been arrested by Syrian intelligence and secretly imprisoned for alleged political offenses – Albawaba.com
