Palestinian fighters in Nablus to receive cash if they give up armed struggle

Feb. 24, 2008 4:54 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 24, 2008 4:54 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - The governor of the West Bank city Nablus, Jamal Muheisin, announced on Sunday that Palestinians wanted by Israel in the northern will receive a cash reward if they willingly turn over their weapons.

Muheisin said that wanted Palestinian activists will be placed under a three month probation period, but will not be arrested, as a precondition for being pardoned. He added that the Palestinian Authority is putting effort into providing the best detention conditions for those who take up this offer.

These arrangements are part of the program "Dialogue with Officials," which is organized by the Palestinian Ministry of Information.

The governor of Nablus also stated that a member of the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), who was seized by Israeli forces on Saturday, intended to turn himself over to the Palestinian Authority.

Muheisin also refuted Israeli claims that military checkpoints will ensure security for Israel, explaining that fighters can bypass these checkpoints and commit attacks anyway. He also said that checkpoints are meant to humiliate the Palestinian people.
