Deported Palestinian prisoners find new home

Celebrations as deported Palestinian prisoners arrive in Qatar, Jordan, Turkey and Syria.



    The forty Palestinian prisoners freed by Israel but considered to be too dangerous to return home to Palestine, arrived in Qatar, Turkey, Jordan and Syria on Tuesday night.

    Hamas and Qatari officials have hailed the deal as an achievement and hoped it is a step towards freeing more prisoners held at Israeli prisons.

    According to the prisoners swap deal, a committee will look into allowing some of these deportees to return to the Palestinian territories.
