    GAZA, (PIC)-- Imad al-Sayyed, spokesman for the families of Palestinian political prisoners in Egyptian jails, said that the Egyptian army has released on Thursday morning 12 of those prisoners.

    For its part, the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in UK (AOHRUK) thanked the military council in Egypt for the release of those prisoner, some of whom spent more than four years in captivity.

    AOHRUK further said that there is still a large number of Palestinian political prisoners remain in Egyptian jails, stressing that there are at least 32 such prisoners and called on the ruling military council to clear the jails of those prisoners and indeed of all political prisoners as demanded by those who participated in the January 25 revolution.
