Israel's continued arrests of prisoners released in the deal to free Gilad Schalit are likely to spark a third intifada, Hamas's released prisoners minister Atallah Abu Al-Sabh said according to Hamas affiliate Al Resalah.

"The arrest of freed prisoners is a violation of the agreement sponsored by our ally in Egypt," Sabh said, after IDF forces arrested Khalid Makhamira in the West Bank, the fifth such prisoner released in exchange for Schalit to be arrested again.

Sabh called on Egypt to pressure Israel to abide by deal signed in Cairo last October, adding that further arrests could fuel the flames of a new Palestinian uprising.
