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 Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, they said. The IDF said Saadi posed an "imminent danger" to security in the West Bank and was being held without trial in administrative detention. He asked to be sent to Gaza instead, and the military agreed. In 2002, Israel expelled 27 West Bank Palestinians to Gaza, charging some were involved in planning suicide bombings. Palestinians and human rights groups have complained about the practice.
