Sheikh Raed Salah begins 5-month jail term

July 25, 2010 9:11 A.M. (Updated: July 26, 2010 10:35 A.M.)
Bethlehem- Ma'an - A prominent Palestinian religious leader began a five-month jail sentence Sunday, after being convicted of assault for spitting on an Israeli border guard.

An Israeli court in occupied East Jerusalem reduced Sheikh Raed Salah's term from nine months on 13 July. A lawyer at the hearing described the ruling as "unprecedented."

The head of the Islamic Movement in northern Israel was indicted for assault for spitting on a border guard in East Jerusalem's Old City in 2007 during a rally against Israeli construction near the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
