IDF troops arrested on Sunday for the first time a Palestinian who had been pardoned last month by Israel. Faris Nazar, a 21-year-old member of the Tanzim terror group, was apprehended at his home in Kfar Kalil near Nablus. IDF sources said that Nazar was pardoned by Israel under the fugitive arrangement last month under which 178 Palestinian terror suspects were temporarily "pardoned" by Israel and given the opportunity to return to a normal life in exchange for surrendering their weapons and ceasing their involvement in terror activity. Central Command sources said Nazar was behind a number of recent bomb and shooting attacks against IDF troops in the Nablus area. The IDF said that all of the pardoned fugitives were under constant surveillance and if they broke the agreement they would be arrested.
