GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas senior official Ismail Radwan said on Friday that Palestinian captives who will be deported upon their release from Israeli occupation jails will be able to return to Gaza at a later stage.

Radwan stressed that the number of those to be deported does not exceed 5% of the total number of captives to be released and explained that the agreement was only signed after the concerned captives agreed to the measure.

Radwan, who was responding to criticism of the prisoner exchange deal by PA Foreign Minister Reyad al-Maliki, said that Maliki’s statements were outside national context which welcomed this historic achievement.

Israeli official said that out 1027 captives who will be released, 40 will be deported abroad and 163 will be sent to the Gaza Strip.
