An Israeli military court has sentenced a man to prison for building and using an illegal Israeli settlement for construction materials in the occupied West Bank.
The court found that Yosef Hamed Gavrieli had “made use of a building materials facility for construction and other activities.”
Gavrielid was sentenced in a military court on Thursday after pleading guilty to charges that he used the facility for “the purpose of constructing structures and other structures, including unauthorized construction and illegal construction of a house.”
Gevrieli is serving a 30-year prison sentence for a separate illegal settlement.
The judge, Major General Yitzhak Regev, sentenced Gavid to 15 years for illegally constructing an illegal outpost in the Jordan Valley.
In the past two years, the courts have convicted dozens of Israeli settlers for building unauthorized settlements in the West Bank, which are considered illegal under international law.
A number of settlements have been demolished in recent years.
The settlement of Bet El, in the southern occupied Westbank, was demolished in 2015.
Other settlements in which construction was done were Ariel, Beit El, Ma’ale Adumim, Be’er Sheva, and Ariel Hills.
