"Families of 13 Palestinians from Gaza were finally reunited with their loved ones at the Rafah crossing, on the border with Egypt. They had to wait three days to see their sons.

On Sunday, Egyptian security sources announced the release of fourteen Palestinians. But only thirteen of them made it to the Gaza Strip.

At least twenty five Palestinians ar estill in Egyptian prisons.
A woman whose three sons and husband are still in Egyptian custody had this to say.

The government of Hamas has welcomed the move by Egypt, expressing appreciation for the Egyptian military council.
Senior Hamas officials who met with Egyptian officials last week, requested the release of the detainees.

The political prisoners hada been in prison without charges or trial.

Since former Egyptian president Husni Mubarak's ouster more than 20 Palestinian detainees in Egypt have returned to the Gaza Strip, some of whom escaped during the uprising in the country and others were released
