GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Egypt’s Supreme Military Council says it will release 14 Palestinians from prisons on Sunday, a rights group said.

The UK-based Arab Organization for Human Rights said the council decided to release the Palestinian detainees after lobbying efforts by prisoners’ relatives and lawyers.

The Egyptian courts had already agreed to release them, but there had been a delay in implementing the decision.
