[ 07/02/2011 - 10:39 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya on Sunday evening visited the Qassam Brigades commander Ayman Nofal who managed to get out of his Egyptian jail a few days earlier and headed back to Gaza.
Haneyya congratulated Nofal over his safe return after years in captivity, underlining that all Palestinians were pleased with the return of Nofal to his family and home.
The premier was accompanied by a number of ministers, senior officials, MPs, and Hamas leaders.
Nofal arrived back to his home in Nusseirat in central Gaza Strip on Saturday night after three years in Egyptian prisons with no charge being leveled against him. He was out of jail during the unrest that prevailed in the Egyptian streets demanding the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak.
