An Arab Israeli has been sentenced to 15 months in prison after being convicted of travelling to Syria and receiving training with the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front.Last month, the privately-run Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Centre estimated that about 20 Arab Israelis had joined the rebels in Syria, as well as 30 Palestinians from Gaza and a handful from the West Bank.Since the Syrian conflict erupted almost three years ago, Israeli security forces have arrested at least three Arab citizens on suspicion of fighting in Syria.
