23-Feb-12: More post-Shalit-deal arrests [UPDATE]

From Challah Hu Akbar's excellent blog this morning:
Over the past few weeks, Israel has arrested a number of terrorists released in the Shalit deal. A number of Palestinian news sources are reporting that Israel arrested another terrorist released in the Shalit deal on Wednesday. The arrested terrorist is reportedly Majdi Atiya Suleman Ajuli. Ma’an News Agency says that Ajuli’s wife and daughter were also arrested. Ajuli was born in 1961 and arrested in 1989. He was serving 1 life sentence for murder before his release on October 18, 2011. He had been released to the West Bank under a security arrangement. The IDF has yet to confirm the arrest. The other day a Hamas official said that the rearrest of those released in the Shalit deal was “a declaration of war on the Palestinian people.”

Thursday 23-Feb-12 UPDATE at 4:30 pm: Challa Hu Akbar says: "I emailed the IDF for comment on the arrest and they told me "we did not arrest him.""
