Imad Al Sayyid, spokesperson of the families of Palestinian detainees in Egyptian prisons, confirmed that the six Palestinians were released and crossed into the Gaza Strip.

Al Sayyid added that four other released detainees remained in Egypt after requesting to stay in the country since they are students in Egyptian colleges, while others carry residency permits.

Since the beginning of the revolution that ousted former Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian Authorities released 46 detained Palestinians.

There are currently twenty Palestinians imprisoned by the Egyptian Authorities, including six whose place of detention or whereabouts are still unknown.
