Terrorist released in Shalit deal arrested for break-in

A 27-year-old resident of Ramallah was one of two suspects arrested on Wednesday evening on suspicion of breaking into a house in Raanana.

An in-depth look at his Israeli identification papers showed them to be forged. The suspect turned out to be one of more than a thousand security prisoners released by Israel in the fall of 2011 for soldier Gil'ad Shalit, who was kidnapped five years earlier in a Hamas attack that resulted in the death of two other soldiers.
