Israeli media sources reported that a French Jew identified as Raphael Schoemann, 65, received 10-month suspended prison sentence for sending bullets accompanied by threatening notes to high-profile figures who are considered to be “sympathetic to the Palestinian cause”.

The note accompanied with the bullets read; “next one won’t arrive by post’. Schoemann was convicted in Paris Thursday, the Israeli Ynetnews reported.

Schoemann said he was a Holocaust camp survivor. He said during his trial last month that he carried out the threats in a bid to make the people targeted "soften their stance" towards Israel.

The Ynetnews added that Schoemann was placed on a three-year good-behavior period and was ordered by the court to pay a symbolic damages fee to each of the 10 people to whom he sent the bullets to in 2003.

The court also ordered Schoemann to pay 5,000 Euros (USD 6,300) in court costs.
