GAZA, (PIC)-- The longest serving captive Nael al-Barghouthi congratulated the Palestinian people on the conclusion of the exchange deal with the Israeli occupation and said that: "after 30 years of captivity, we are just soldiers returning to their bases.”
Barghouthi, who is on the list of prisoners to be freed from occupation jails, told  “Falastin” newspaper that the Zionist illusion was dispersed with this deal which proved to be a spiritual uniting force of the Palestinian people.
He added that he hoped this unity would result in effective efforts to free the rest of Palestinian and Arab captives from occupation jails. He also praised the Palestinian resistance which inspired change in the Arab world which will lead to a brighter future.
He thanked the negotiating team and praised their resilience and wished this spirit of resilience is transferred to the rest of Palestinian factions so that Palestinians can work for liberation and return of refugees.
Barghouthi, who has served 33 years, remembered his mother who died while he was in captivity and could not see him and prayed for God to bless her and bless all the mothers who died while their children were in captivity.
