Baku-APA. Egypt on Thursday freed six members of the Gaza-based Islamic Jihad movement after more than two months of detention and transferred them to Gaza, sources from the movement said Thursday, APA reports quoting Xinhua News Agency.

The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Xinhua that the six members of the movement’s armed wing had been detained at Cairo airport en route to Gaza from Damascus.

The freed activists returned to Gaza through Rafah border crossing, the sources said, adding that no charges were directed at the detainees when they were at custody.

The Islamic Jihad movement is smaller than Islamic Hamas movement which has ruled Gaza since 2007.
