Palestinians stranded in Egypt allowed to return to Saudi Arabia

Sept. 4, 2014 3:33 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 6, 2014 6:19 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- More than 100 Palestinians from Gaza stranded at Cairo International Airport for over four weeks were allowed to travel to Saudi Arabia on Thursday.

Muhammad Abu Hamad, one of the passengers, told Ma'an that the Palestinian Embassy requested that Saudi Arabia allow the stranded travelers to receive special permits to enter the country.

The passengers are Palestinians from Gaza who work in Saudi Arabia. Egypt denied them the right to continue their travel onto Saudi Arabia because they visa permits had expired due to their inability to leave Gaza during Israel's seven-week offensive.

The 100 or so Palestinians managed to escape to Egypt following a temporary ceasefire agreement but Egyptian authorities prevented them from traveling to Saudi Arabia.
