IDF troops on Thursday re-arrested a Palestinian released in exchange for Gilad Schalit, in the third such operation since the prisoner swap last October.

IDF sources said that Hana Shalbi, a 30-year-old female member of Islamic Jihad, was arrested in the village of Burkin by a force of reservists. The sources said that Shalbi was involved in terrorist activity.

Shalbi’s arrest was the third time the IDF re-arrested a Palestinian prisoner who had been released in exchange for Schalit.
