Jenin - Israeli troops on Friday re-arrested a Palestinian who was freed under terms of a prisoner swap deal between Israel and the Hamas movement, Palestinian security sources said.

Arref Fakhuri, an officer in the Palestinian intelligence services, was arrested early on Friday at his home in Jaba village near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, they said.

He was one of 1 027 prisoners who were freed late last year under terms of a deal which also saw the release of Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier who was held captive by Gaza's Hamas rulers for more than five years.

The Israeli army could not immediately confirm the arrest.
