JERUSALEM – A Jerusalem court yesterday sentenced an Arab resident of the city to 42 months in prison after he was convicted of working in Israel’s capital as an agent of the Palestinian Authority’s General Intelligence Service.

WND exclusively reported last year the PA had established an intelligence apparatus in Jerusalem in part to stop Israeli Arabs from selling their homes to Jews in strategic areas of the city, according to informed security sources.

The Jerusalem court sentenced Muhammad Jayusi, 21, who had been convicted of working for the PA’s intelligence service since 2006. He was also convicted of illegally carrying arms.

According to a security source with knowledge of the case, Jayusi was involved with helping the PA discover which Jerusalem Arabs were vulnerable to possibly selling their homes to Jews.

In May, the PA sentenced three Arabs to death for selling their Jerusalem property to Jews. According to Palestinian sources, PA President Mahmoud Abbas personally had signed all death warrants.
