The Jerusalem District Court sentences Yasmin Jaber, a resident of the Old City of Jerusalem, to two-and-a-half years in prison for working to recruit Israelis and Palestinians to carry out terror attacks on behalf of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror group.

Jabar, who worked for the National Library of Israel at the time, was arrested in August after an extensive Shin Bet security service investigation.
