JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday re-arrested released female prisoner Muna Qadan in Jenin, a prisoners group said.
Qadan, 40, was detained after soldiers raided her home in the village of Arraba, the Ahrar center for prisoners studies and human rights said.
She was released from Israeli jail as part of the second phase of a prisoner swap last year between Hamas and Israel, having spent three years in prison for being a member of Islamic Jihad.
It is the fifth time she has been detained by Israeli forces.
The Ahrar center condemned the arrest, saying that it violated the terms of the prisoner swap deal.
Fouad al-Khafsh, the center’s director, called on the Egyptian delegation who played an important role in the prisoner swap to intervene.
