Israeli forces detain freed prisoner in Balata camp

June 18, 2014 11:08 P.M. (Updated: June 20, 2014 11:00 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli special forces dressed as Arabs on Wednesday detained a Palestinian who was previously freed in a prisoner exchange deal during a raid on Balata refugee camp east of Nablus.

Local security sources told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the camp in a Mitsubishi car and detained Mahdi Shukri al-Assi, 34, in an alley in the camp.

Israeli forces had raided al-Assi's house on Wednesday at dawn, locals said, but he was not home at the time.

A number of Israeli special force units known as mistaaravim specialize in dressing up as "Arabs" during raids in Palestinian areas so as not to attract attention.
