GAZA, (PIC)-- Fatemah al-Zak expressed her delight at being released from Israeli occupation jails, but hastened to add that joy will not be complete before the release of all Palestinian captives from Israeli jails.
Zak, who was speaking at a joint press conference with the Palestinian Prime Minster Ismail Haneyya held on Friday afternoon at the government headquarters in Gaza, greeted everyone attending the conference and thanked everyone for their efforts.
"I thank God for on this joyous occasion .. but our joy is not complete as I left behind me [in jail] sisters who are dear to my heart," said Zak, "It is God's favour first and foremost, then any party concerned with freeing all captives which I hope will be soon."
She thanked Hamas and factions holding Gilad Shalit for their relentless efforts to get Palestinian captives released from Israeli jails.
She talked with great emotion about how good it feels to be free and to be able to hug her children again.
Zak was released with 19 other women captives in a deal, arrived at through German mediation, by which the resistance factions holding Shalit provided a one minute video to prove he is alive and well in return for the release of 20 women captives.
