Israeli Arab Arrested for Spying

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

An Israeli Arab was arrested earlier this year for spying, a Tel Aviv district court disclosed Tuesday.

The court lifted the blackout it imposed on the case of Mahmud Masarwe, after ruling that the accused is entitled to appeal the detention order against him.

Masarwe, a resident of Baka al-Gharbiya village, is charged with aggravated espionage, illegal possession of firearms and incitement.
