Exterior of Prime Minister's offices as car drives out STORYLINE: The Israeli military on Monday expelled a Palestinian from the West Bank to Gaza, saying he was involved in attacks against Israelis. A military statement said Kamal Idris was a member of a Palestinian cell that carried out attacks in the Hebron area. The military said the expulsion was meant to prevent his involvement in further attacks. Palestinian security officials said Idris was dropped off by soldiers in an isolated area near a main Gaza Strip junction. Last year the Israeli military tried to expel relatives of convicted militants from the West Bank to Gaza as a deterrent measure, but the Israeli Supreme Court rejected that, limiting expulsion only to those involved directly in violence. Up to now, the court has allowed the military to expel only three Palestinians from the West Bank to Gaza. The three were accused of being accomplices to suicide bombings. One of them was said to have sewn belts to be fitted with explosives and strapped to attackers' bodies. The military statement said the court had rejected Idris' appeal against the expulsion order. The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights condemned Idris' expulsion, calling it a violation of international law and a war crime. Human rights lawyers complain that Israel expels suspects without trial or presenting evidence against them. To many Palestinians, expulsion from their land, even to an area under Palestinian control, is a punishment more severe than imprisonment. Idris had been held in an army detention centre, and the army said it was forced to expel him because he could not be tried without revealing intelligence sources. Idris would be forced to remain in Gaza for two years, Palestinian security officials said. Security officers picked him up and took him to a building in Gaza City that has been used in the past to house Palestinians expelled by Israel. On October 14, the Israeli military issued expulsion orders against 15 Palestinians, the largest number yet. The orders are in the appeals process.
