GAZA, (PIC)– The Cairo authorities did not release any of the Palestinian detainees in Egypt, relatives of those prisoners in the Gaza Strip said in a statement on Wednesday.

They said that the first report from Egypt about the release of 14 detainees was not true, as they were released from jail then taken back to it.

They added that the reported nine other detainees to be released on Wednesday were among the earlier 14 and were still in custody.

The relatives denounced the Egyptian authorities for tampering with their feelings, affirming that 24 detainees in the Egyptian Aqrab jail in Hilwan had entered their fifth day of hunger strike.
