Palestinian rocket engineer sentenced to 21 years’ jail

A Palestinian engineer was sentenced on Tuesday to 21 years in prison for helping Gaza’s Hamas militant group develop and 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 organisation and building and modifying missiles used against Israel.
