July 21, 2012 19:17

Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Saturday telephoned speaker of the
speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Aziz Dweik, to congratulate him on his release from Israeli prison, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

IDF soldiers arrested the senior Hamas official in January on suspicion of involvement with terrorist groups.

Dweik said the phone call was representative of the post-Arab Spring era, according to the  report.

“It was an honor to receive a phone call from the president of Egypt ... who checked up on my health and congratulated me over being freed from the Occupation’s jails. He also congratulated me over Ramadan and prayed to God to bring the Palestinian people all the good,” Ma'an quoted Dweik as saying.
