TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained Thursday one of the prisoners who was released in the latest prisoners swap deal, the ministry of prisoners’ affairs said.
The ministry said soldiers detained Ayed Muhammad Khalil from Qaffin village in Tulkarem with his brother and sister in law after they were stopped at a flying checkpoint.
The ministry condemned the arrest, saying it was a clear violation of the agreement between Israel and Hamas, the first stage of which was carried out in October. The second part is to be carried out within weeks.
The ministry urged Egypt and the negotiators to fully implement the deal.
The Israeli military did not return calls.
