Israel on Monday expelled a Palestinian prisoner from the West Bank to Gaza, officials in Gaza said. The prisoner, Abdullah Saadi, 26, lived in Jenin, at the northern edge of the West Bank. He belongs to the military wing of Fatah, the movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, they said. The Israeli military had no immediate comment. In 2002, Israel expelled 27 West Bank Palestinians to Gaza, charging they were involved in planning a suicide bombing. Palestinians and human rights groups have complained about the practice.
