Palestinian Territories — Israeli troops on Thursday re-arrested a Palestinian woman who was one of hundreds of prisoners released in October under a swap deal with Israel, the military said.
Haneh Shalabi was arrested in Burqin village near the northern West Bank town of Jenin, on suspicion that she "posed a threat to the area" an army spoksman told AFP.
She was "a global jihad-affiliated operative " he said, adding that she "violently attacked the soldiers who arrested her."
He did not elaborate on Shalabi's alleged affiliations.
On Tuesday, troops in the southern city of Hebron re-arrested another Palestinian, a member of the Islamist Hamas movement, who was also released under the swap agreement.
Under terms of the October swap deal, Israel freed more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in a two-stage release in exchange for captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit who was snatched by Gaza-based militants in June 2006.
