ISIS Recruit Sentenced To 3.5 Years

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

An Israeli Arab convicted of fighting with Islamic State (ISIS) was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison by the Nazareth District Court on Wednesday.

Marwan Khaledi, 20, joined ISIS in Iraq in 2014. He was charged with contact with a foreign agent, membership and activity in an illegal organization, military training in a terrorist setting, and traveling to an enemy country illegally.

Khaledi was arrested in January upon his return at Ben Gurion Airport. A month later he was indicted.

Khaledi had made his way into Iraq, where he was apparently badly injured. His family re-established contact with him after he was hospitalized in Turkey.
