Israeli forces summon released prisoners near Hebron

Maan News Agency | March 12, 2012

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces raided the southern West Bank city of Yatta on Saturday evening, and delivered summons to three former prisoners to appear for questioning.

Director of the Palestinian prisoners society in Hebron Amjad Najjar said Thiab Sameer Abu Qbeita, Othman Yasser Abu Iram, and Fawwaz Nawajaa received the orders. All three were released under the October 2011 deal in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier in Gaza.

Soldiers also raided the home of Muhammad Rashid, a 18-year-old detained on Thursday when forces surrounded the home of another released prisoner, Khaled Makhamreh.

22-year-old Zakaria Abu Araam was killed in the Thursday raid, and Rashid was injured, while an Israeli soldier was also wounded.

Late Saturday, forces handed summons to the detained teen’s father, and brother Tamir, to appear before Israeli intelligence for questioning on Tuesday, Najjar said.

Since the prisoner swap last year, 16 of those released have been rearrested and at least seven are still in jail, according to latest figures from prisoners groups.
