Police say a Palestinian woman who attempted to illegally enter Israel on Friday was revealed to be one of 240 prisoners Israel freed in November in a hostage deal with Hamas.
According to police, Border Police officers stationed at the a-Za’im checkpoint near Jerusalem stopped a suspicious vehicle, in which a Palestinian woman tried to identify herself using an ID card that did not belong to her.
Police say the officers realized the woman, a 21-year-old resident of the village of Beit Ur, had been previously detained in October during clashes.
At the time, she had been shot in the leg and arrested after allegedly hurling stones at Border Police officers, while masked.
Police say the woman is affiliated with Hamas and was released in the hostage deal with the terror group in November.
