BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces near Bethlehem early Friday detained a Palestinian who was freed as a part of a prisoner swap deal with Hamas in 2011, Israeli media said Saturday.

The Israeli news site Ynet reported that soldiers detained a man who was accused of hurling Molotov cocktails at troops near a bypass road south of Bethlehem.

According to the report, the man was freed as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap deal.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that two Palestinians hurled four Molotov cocktails toward Israeli forces near the village of al-Khadr and shortly afterward were detained.

In June 2006 a group of Hamas and other militants entered into Israel through a cross-border tunnel and seized Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

He was released on Oct. 18, 2011 in exchange for 1,027 Palestinians held in Israeli prisons.
