The Palestinian Authorityís security forces arrested on Saturday
Zakaria Zubeidi, the former commander of the Fatah movementís al-Aqsa
Martyrs Brigades in Jenin.
According to a report on the Haaretz website, the reason for the
arrest is unclear.
Zubeidi is considered one of the most powerful men in Jenin, and
recently there has been friction between him and the PA, the report
said. The Fatahís Secretary General in Jenin, Atta Abu Ramila, has
also turned himself to PA security forces.
This is the second time in several months that Zubeidi has been
arrested by the PA. In December, he turned himself in to the PA after
claiming that Israel had canceled the pardon it had given him three
years earlier and instructed him to hand himself in.
His status as a wanted criminal was cancelled a week after he turned
himself in, Haaretz reported.
Zubeidi was admired by an Israeli woman, Tali Fahima, who crossed the
lines to accompany him when he was wanted by the IDF. Fahima, who
served jail time for treasonous activities in the service of Fatah,
has since been released and converted into Islam. (IsraelNationalNews
