Swedish national recruited by Hezbollah has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for spying for the Lebanese terror group, Israel’s Central District Court said Sunday.

Following a plea bargain reached with the state, Lebanon-born Hassan Khalil Hizran, 55, was found guilty of passing information to a foreign agent, but more serious charges of direct contact with a terrorist group and active involvement in terror activities were dropped.
