Israel rearrests Hamas lawmaker in West Bank
Israeli soldiers arrested Hamas lawmaker Muhammad Natsheh early Monday at his home in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, Hamas officials said, DPA reported.
They said the soldiers searched Natsheh's home before taking him away.
Natsheh is the sixth Hamas lawmaker to be rearrested by Israel since December.
Israel arrested several members of Hamas' senior leadership in the summer of 2006, in retaliation for the abduction of an Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, who is still being held captive in Gaza. Israel gradually released most, but this winter detained several of them again.
Natsheh was released from prison in September after serving almost nine years, six of them in solitary confinement, said Hamas sources.
