Palestinian ex-MK to begin jail term over Syria visit

“Ramallah, West Bank – Said Nafaa, a former Palestinian member of the Israeli parliament, will on Sunday begin serving a one-year jail sentence for travelling to “an enemy state”, after a second appeal of his case to the Israeli Supreme Court was rejected this month.”

“Nafaa, a Druze who served in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, from 2007 until 2013, was charged last year with travelling to an “enemy state” after a trip to Syria in 2007 to visit fellow Druze, along with about 200 other people. He was consequently stripped of his parliamentary immunity in 2010.”
