Brothers detained during Gaza war released

Gaza – Ma’an – Israeli officials released Gazan brothers Saed and Ibrahim Kassab from prison Sunday, after both served nearly a year in administrative detention.

The brothers, from the Zaytoun neighborhood in Gaza City, were detained by Israeli soldiers during that country's war on the Gaza Strip which began on 27 December 2008.

The men were taken during raids into area when Israeli troops entered the Strip during the ground invasion on 3 January.

The brothers were held without charge, the Wa’ed Detainees Association reported on Monday.

The men were received by their friends and family at the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip.
