Prisoner deported to Gaza Strip

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel on Thursday deported a Palestinian prisoner to the Gaza Strip as part of a deal to end his 40-day hunger strike.

Ayman Abu Daoud is from the West Bank city of Hebron, where his wife and children live.

He was freed in October 2011 in Israel's prisoner swap deal with Hamas, but Israel rearrested him four months later. Israeli prosecutors sought to sentence him to 28 years, the remainder of his former sentence.

Abu Daoud went on hunger strike for 40 days, and Israel agreed in May to deport him to the Gaza Strip for 10 years.

He arrived in Gaza through the Erez crossing on Thursday.
