The IDF Shomron Military Court last week sentenced Balata resident Ihav Abu Rahil to six years in prison for conspiring to poison patrons of the Grill Express Restaurant in 2008.
The two planned to poison patrons of the Ramat Gan Diamond Exchange restaurant on a Tuesday, a busy day, plotting to introduce a tasteless colorless toxic substance into the food.
Ihav and a partner, both affiliated with the al-Aqsa Brigade faction of Fatah, contracted another terrorist to who to furnish the poisonous substance that was to be mixed into the food.
On the day of his arrest, Ihav told security officials the poison was ready and indeed it was, permitting agents to intercept it on its way to Ramat Gan from Shechem.
