The Military Court on Wednesday sentenced retired army Brigadier General Adib al-Alam to 15 years hard labor on charges of collaboration with the Israeli enemy.
His wife Hayat Saloumi was sentenced to four years hard labor.
The trial of Alam, who was detained in 2010, had been postponed several times due to failure to form the court's bench.
The retired general had gathered information on an alleged Syrian nuclear reactor site in Deir al-Zour that Israel bombed in September 2007, a security source told al-Liwaa newspaper.
The daily quoted sources as saying that Alam passed on the info to Israel without specifying the nature of the data.
