Israeli and Jordanian convicted of spying on Egypt

An Israeli and a Jordanian have been convicted of spying on Egypt on behalf of Israel. The Israeli was convicted in absentia (Hat Tip: David R).
Cairo's state security court has sentenced a Jordanian and an Israeli to 10 years in jail on charges of spying for Israel.
Bashar Abu-Zaid, a Jordanian communications engineer, was charged with planting communication networks in Egypt and using them to spy on Egyptian officials in exchange for payment from Mossad, Israel's national intelligence agency.
The Israeli official in the case, Ofer Haray, was sentenced in absentia.
Both were accused of transmitting phone calls to Israel with aims of monitoring the whereabouts of Egyptian police and army personnel.
Abu-Zaid was arrested in Egypt in 2011 and was referred to court in August of the same year.
The Egyptian revolution overthrowing Hosni Mubarak started in January 2011. Hmmm.
