Gaza man with psychiatric disorder returns home after 4 year disappearance in Egypt

Dec. 17, 2016 6:22 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 17, 2016 6:24 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A young man suffering from a psychiatric disorder returned to his family in the besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday after having been missing for four years.

The family of 24-year-old Abdullah al-Jayyar told Ma'an that he returned from Egypt via the Rafah crossing on Saturday, which opened on Saturday for the first of a three-day opening. 

Al-Jayyar went missing four years ago in Egypt while with his father on a medical treatment trip.

The family added that they were contacted by Egyptians after al-Jayyar was found in an Egyptian mental health facility.
