JNS.org – Former Member of Knesset Said Nafa, who served for the Arab party Balad from 2007-13, was sentenced on Thursday by the Nazareth District Court to one year in prison after being convicted in April for visiting an enemy state and contacting a foreign agent.

In 2007, Nafa visited Syria, even though the Israeli Interior Ministry had not approved the trip. In Syria, he met with Talal Naji, the deputy secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command terror group.

Nafa, 61, is from the Druze village of Beit Jann in northern Israel.
