Majd Oweida 23 was Sentenced to 9 Years in an Israeli Prison After Being Convicted of Hacking a Military Drone System Majd is Renowned in the Gaza Strip

No one doubts that Majd Oweida, 23, is brilliant, but what he did with his brilliance is a source of discord between his parents who advocate his release from an Israeli prison and the Israeli security service that accused him of hacking his drones for Islamic Jihad.
They located a hacker and tried to continue with Hamas and Islamic Jihad. None of them complained to Majd, a kind of local hero, a Palestinian robot designer and talent scout for the popular program "Palestinians Got Talent." In February Majd was sentenced to nine years in prison for spying on the Israeli army by a terrorist organization, Islamic Jihad.
Majd confessed, but his parents say the charges are foolish and the authorities had no concrete evidence when they sentenced him. They claim that Majd was tortured to make a false confession, and Palestinian human rights groups have accepted.
