Woman convicted of spying for Hezbollah sentenced to 2.5 years in jail

An Arab Israeli woman convicted of spying for the Hezbollah terror group has been sentenced to 2.5 years in jail after photographing various strategic sites for the group, including Iron Dome batteries and military bases.

Mai-Bat Masarwa was found to have sent photos to a Hezbollah agent who contacted her online, including bases, guard posts, military vehicles, and more.

Masarwa has confessed to the actions, but claimed she believed she was in touch with a Lebanese reporter, not a Hezbollah man.
