UPDATED list: Israel pardons 90 former Fatah fighters

Nov. 26, 2009 7:08 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 3, 2009 10:15 A.M.)
Nablus – Ma’an Exclusive – Israel has agreed to remove 90 former Palestinian fighters from its list of “wanted” men on the eve of the Muslim Eid Al-Adha holiday, Palestinian sources said on Thursday.

The sources indicated that on Wednesday night the Palestinian Authority (PA) handed Israeli officials a list of 93 people it wants removed from the wanted list during a meeting.

Initial reports Thursday said Israel agreed to pardon 26 of the men, and ease restrictions on the movement and rights of others. Reports by Friday morning were that Israel had decided to pardon 90. Only eight of the total, however, received full pardons. Thirty-two received partial pardons, and the rest received "improvements" to their conditions.

Not all the men were fully pardoned. Of the initial 26, all of the men had to report to a PA compound and sleep there at night will now be able to sleep at home. Seven of the first round of pardons will be released from the PA’s Juneid prison, outside the West Bank city of Nablus.

Since 2007 former Palestinian fighters signed “amnesty” agreements in which they would hand in their weapons, swear not to fight, and spend a term in a PA jail in exchange for a return to normal life, free of the threat of arrest or assassination by Israeli.

One of the newly pardoned men was Ala Sanakreh, 29, of Balata Refugee Camp in Nablus, who is now working for the PA security forces. Israel agreed not to track or pursue him, making him fully pardoned. He told Ma’an he was elated at the news, and considered the decision a step toward peace.

Sanakreh was formerly one the most wanted men in the West Bank. He said he escaped several assassination attempts. The Israeli military killed his brother Ibrahim in 2006 and and another brother Ahmad in 2007.

“We, as Palestinians should be able to live freely like any other people around the world. We deserve to live a happy life,” he said.
