More on the Prisoner Release


Ha’aretz has reported that two of the prisoners scheduled for release do not want to be part of the deal!

In one strange late twist, two of the 35 Arab prisoners scheduled for release refused to be incorporated in the exchange deal. Ayid Sanusi, a citizen of Morocco, was arrested in Israel several years ago as an illegal resident. He was subsequently released, remained in the country and got married here. In 2001, he was arrested again on domestic violence charges and was slated for expulsion. Sanusi is refusing to be sent to Lebanon with the other prisoners in the deal.

Also, Haaretz has learned that a second prisoner has refused to go to Lebanon as part of the exchange even though Hezbollah had asked for his release.

Could it be that they prefer jail in Israel to living in Lebanon?
