Palestinian Arrested for Collaboration with Israel
Palestinian security forces have arrested a Palestinian for allegedly helping Israeli intelligence track down and kill a member of leader Yasser Arafat's Fateh faction, a security source said Saturday.
Police "have recently arrested a Palestinian from Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, on suspicion of supplying Israeli intelligence services with information on the whereabouts of Jamal Abdel Razeq, a Fatah activist," the source told AFP.
Abdel Razeq and three other Palestinians were killed November 22 when an Israeli tank opened fire on two vehicles near the Jewish settlement of Morag, a frequent focus of protests in the southern Gaza Strip.
The source said the Palestinians were killed "when an Israeli vehicle caught two cars near Rafah. Soldiers came out and fired more than 100 bullets toward them."
Palestinian police are questioning the suspect, said the source, who declined to identify the person -- GAZA CITY (AFP)
