Nablus – Ma'an – The Israeli government revoked the full amnesty granted to a previously "wanted" Palestinian for a partial agreement, sources said Wednesday.

Mahdi Maraqa, 33, from Nablus, and once affiliated to Fatah's paramilitary organization the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, will from Wednesday on be detained by Palestinian authorities at 8pm daily and spend the night in a detention center.

Additionally, the Palestinian Authority was been ordered to prohibit Maraqa from leaving area A, the only part of the West Bank under full Palestinian control following the Oslo Accords in 1993.

In accordance with Israel's amnesty offer to "wanted" Palestinian combatants, Maraqa was transferred to the PA Juneid Prison in Nablus in November 2008, and asked to hand in all arms and denounce Palestinian militancy. In return, those pardoned will not be subject to Israeli assassinations.

Following his term he was pardoned and given full amnesty in 2009.
