Egypt’s ambassador to the Palestinian Authority, Yasser Othman, has expressed appreciation for the Palestinian government in Gaza’s position, patience and cooperation with the Egyptian authorities in resolving the captured soldiers’ crisis in Sinai.

In response to Hamas leader Dr Salah Al-Bardawil’s congratulations of the Egyptian authorities for releasing the Egyptian soldiers, Othman said, “We commend the patience and endurance of the Palestinian people while the Rafah crossing was closed in order to resolve this crisis.”

Egypt’s President, Mohammad Morsi, the Minister of Defence and its military leaders all received the seven soldiers in the Almatha Airport after the Egyptian army was able to set them free early this morning.
