PNN/Bethlehem

On Monday morning, the Israeli Occupation’s Ministerial Committee drafted an “anti-terrorism” law. According to the Israeli seventh channel, the ministerial committee is expected to approve the bill, which amends and expands the definition of “terrorist organizations” and stresses that sanctions must be imposed on members of so-called organizations and perpetrators of “terrorist” attacks.

Under this bill, any members of organizations that fulfill the infrastructure necessary to be considered a “terrorist” organization will be sentenced to 25 years imprisonment. A member who holds a senior position in the organization could be sentenced to 15 years in prison.

According to the bill, any person who offers technical support, broadcast services, or money laundering, to the organization can be convicted. Furthermore, the bill prevents any judicial changes and reductions to the convicted sentence of 15 years or more.
