Gaza terrorist to serve 18 years for firing rockets
Man involved in firing rockets at Sderot; arrested in 2011, when he crossed into Israel from Gaza for reconnaissance.
Gaza terrorist Khaled Silawi was sentenced by the Beersheba District Court on Monday to 18 years in prison for firing rockets at Israel.
Silawi, 21, was also convicted of spying on Israeli military positions on the Gaza border to plan future attacks. The convictions came as part of a plea bargain agreement in which he admitted to the charges.
According to the indictment, Silawi started his involvement in terrorism when he met a man who called himself “Abu Said,” commander of a unit of the Popular Resistance Committees, in 2007. He took part in a 15-day training course on weapons and other aspects of warfare along with 60 others. All wore masks during the training.
Later, Silawi was involved in firing rockets at Sderot, including moving the rocket launcher, setting a timer and leaving the area. He was arrested on April 30, 2011, when he crossed into Israel to perform reconnaissance of Israeli positions on the Gaza border.
