GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The Ministry for Detainees in the Gaza Strip reported Monday that the Israeli prison administration had released Abu Sahib, 47.

Abu Sahib, also known as Ahmad Ismael, had spent 20 years in Israeli prison.

Ministry spokesman Riyad Al-Ashkar told Ma'an that Ismael was detained in 1992, having been accused of participating in operations against Israel with the Al Qassam Brigades during the first intifada.

He was sentenced to 20 years in jail.

Ismael's sister died three months before his release, Al-Askar added.
