Israel to release two Jordanian nationals


Israel will release two Jordanian citizens from prison on Wednesday, the Jordanian foreign minister said. 

Hiba al-Labadi and Abdulrahman Miri “will be with their families in Jordan within hours,” Ayman al-Safadi said on Twitter.

Also, Arab member of Knesset Ahmad Tibi confirmed in a tweet that the two Jordanian nationals will be released soon and return to Jordan.

Last week, Jordan recalled its ambassador to Israel Ghassan al-Majali in protest of the continued detention of the two Jordanian citizens by Israeli authorities.

Al-Safadi held Israel responsible for the lives of the two citizens and vowed to take all necessary measures to ensure their safe return.

Israel had detained al-Labadi on Aug. 20 and Miri on Sept. 2 separately after crossing the King Hussein Bridge which links Jordan to Israel-occupied West Bank, without elaborating on the reasons of the arrest.
