BEIRUT, (PIC)-- Turkey, Jordan, and Syria have expressed readiness to host the 40 Palestinian prisoners who will be freed from Israeli jails on condition of being banished outside Palestine, political bureau member of Hamas Ezzet Al-Resheq revealed.

He said in a press statement on Monday that preparations would be finalized within the next two days for hosting those ex-prisoners in those countries.

He said that a senior Hamas delegation led by its supreme leader Khaled Mishaal would fly to Cairo on Monday to receive and honor the liberated prisoners.

Resheq said that contacts were made with PA chief and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas to turn the occasion (receiving the freed prisoners) into a national occasion reflecting unity of the Palestinian people.
