Israel releases 4 detainees

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Sunday released four Palestinian detainees who had served seven year sentences, the Gaza Prisoners' Affairs Ministry said.

The ministry identified the detainees as Muneer Shabear and Hasan Al-Kahlut from northern Gaza, Ahmad Al-Gazawy from Gaza City and Fahed Abu Hasanein from Rafah.

They were detained in April 2004, the ministry said.

Palestinians welcomed the men at the Erez crossing.
