Israeli court sentences Palestinian man to 8 years in prison for 'dangerous practices'

July 10, 2016 9:12 P.M. (Updated: July 11, 2016 3:50 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- An Israeli military court sentenced a Palestinian man to eight years in prison on Sunday, after he was convicted of involvement in unspecified "dangerous practices."

Marwan Maadi, a resident of the Ramallah area village of Jifna in the central occupied West Bank, was initially detained in 2012 after being accused of taking part in the mob killing of two Israeli reservists in 2000 after they had accidentally wandered into Ramallah, a crime from which he was later found innocent.

Maadi was acquitted on the murder charges in August 2015, but was found guilty of assault.

Lawyer for the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society Iyad Mahamid said on Sunday that Maadi was found guilty of involvement in “dangerous practices,” without expanding on the nature of the sentence, or details of what “practices” Maadi was allegedly involved in.

Most of the Palestinians who were detained after the murder in 2000 were sentenced to lifetime imprisonment.
