Israel has canceled the pardon of the former Fatah terror leader in Jenin, Zakaria Zubeidi, and instructed him to hand himself in to the Palestinian Authority (PA), he told Ma'an on Thursday.
Zubeidi, who headed the Al-Aqsa Brigades during the murderous terror war launched by the PLO in 2000, told the PA-based news agency he had stuck to all the conditions of the amnesty deal granted him by Israel three years ago.
However, he said, Israel informed PA security forces on Thursday that Zubeidi's pardon had been revoked, and that Israeli forces would detain him if he did not turn himself in.
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.
