GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces operating in the northern Gaza Strip detained an elderly Palestinian man who was released in 2011 from prison in an exchange deal for a captured soldier, residents said.

Muhammad Abu Khusa, 82, was seized outside his home in Beit Lahiya, nearby residents said.

They said Abu Khusa tried to reach his family and told them he was in pain.

The former prisoner was first arrested in 1978 and served 36 years in prison.

In 2011, Hamas and other armed groups exchanged a captured Israeli soldier for 1,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails.

Since the kidnapping and killing of three teenagers in the occupied West Bank in June, Israel has begun rounding up those it freed in exchange for the soldier, Gilad Shalit.

Hamas has denounced the arrests as a violation of the agreement.

Israel deserves to be condemned for arresting these terrorist criminals instead of erasing them from the face of this earth. What a waste of tax dollars. One bullet costs less than a Riyal. Better yet, those Hamas terrorists should be beheaded, Islam style and the cost of the bullet saved.

Responding to violence with brutality will bring peace taking human history as a reference point?
