WAFA FEB 21 2012

QALQILYA, February 21, 2012 (WAFA) – The Israeli military authorities Tuesday arrested two Palestinian ex-detainees from the Qalqilya area, in the north of the West Bank, who were released in December in the Gilad Shalit prisoners swap, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club (PPC).

Israeli soldiers arrested Yousef Ishtewi from his house in the city of Qalqilya after raiding and ransacking it, said head of the PPC in Qalqilya Lafy Nasorah.

He said the arrest came a month after the Israeli intelligence summoned Ishtewi and notified him that he cannot leave the city without prior coordination with the Israeli authorities and that he was at risk of arrest at any time.

Soldiers also raided Jayyous, a village east of Qalqilya, and arrested ex-detainee Mahmoud Salim.
