18-May-12: Another Shalit-for-terrorists terrorist is back in prison

Yet another of the 1,027 terrorists whose freedom from Israeli prison was extorted in October 2011 in the deal to release an Israeli hostage from Hamas captivity, was re-arrested today by Israeli forces. Though Israel has not yet identified him, PalToday, an Arabic source (hat tip Challah Hu Akbar), says his name is Arif KhaIid Yunis Fawakhiriya who was sentenced in 2002 to a term of 28 years for attempted murder and other terrorist offences.

There have been several such arrests in the last few months.

According to the Israeli government announcements made at the time of the Shalit transaction, terrorists who are re-offend and are recaptured will be sent back to prison to complete the terms to which they were originally sentenced.
