Israeli court sentences Palestinian rocket engineer to 21 years’ jail

An Israeli court sentenced a Palestinian engineer on Tuesday to 21 years in prison for helping Hamas improve their weapons capabilities.

Dirar Abu Sisi, detained by Israel in 2011, was a director of the Gaza Strip’s sole power station. He said he was kidnapped during a visit to Ukraine in February and transferred secretly to Israel.

In a plea-bargain agreement that sealed a court case lasting over four years, Abu Sisi pleaded guilty to five counts which included membership of a militant organization and building and modifying missiles used against Israel.
