Israel reverses Gaza deportation

April 22, 2010 6:52 P.M. (Updated: April 23, 2010 4:21 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli authorities reversed a decision on Thursday to expel a Palestinian man to the Gaza Strip.

Hours earlier, de facto government officials had refused to accept Saber Al-Beyari, 36, following his deportation from Israel, security sources said, heightening tensions around a new military law expanding the definition of an "infiltrator."

"Al-Beiyyari has returned home, after arriving at the Erez crossing, following the intervention of his lawyer," the Wa'ed society said.

The man had been granted a temporary residence permit 15 years earlier so he could live with his wife, a Palestinian citizen of Israel living in her native Yaffa, a small Palestinian community encompassed by what is now Tel Aviv.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Al-Beyari was taken from a hospital in the area and deported directly to Gaza without explanation. The sources said he arrived at the Erez crossing at noon.

Once on the Palestinian side of the Erez crossing, de facto government officials refused to permit his entry into the coastal enclave, in what officials called an effort to prevent Israel from implementing the policy.

Stranded at the border area, Al-Beyari said he was awaiting the help of human rights organizations so he could return to his family in Yaffa.
