BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the home of a newly-freed Palestinian prisoner in the village of Shawawrah near Bethlehem early Sunday, residents told Ma'an.
A number of Israeli troops "broke into" the home of Iyad Shawawrah, handing him a summons to appear for interrogation in the Gush Etzion settlement, his family said.
Shawawrah was freed from Israeli prisons last Thursday after spending 11 years behind bars.
An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.
The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
