Kadaish Barnea Resident Released by Egyptians

Egyptian authorities have released Kadaish Barnea resident Saggai Schori, who mistakenly crossed the border while traveling on his motorcycle over the weekend, leading to his arrest. The matter was complicated somewhat after the Egyptian realized he was carrying a handgun. Ultimately, diplomatic efforts prevailed and the 36-year-old Saggai was released four days after he was taken into custody by Egyptian border police. He returned home on Tuesday night. His motorcycle was also returned.

In the meantime, efforts continue to secure the release of a 44-year-old man who swam into Egyptian territorial waters and was placed under arrest. Authorities explain this was not the first time that he was taken into custody by the Egyptians, describing the man as ‘mentally unstable’.

  1. IMHO, in the days after yetzias mitzrayim anyone who voluntarily goes back to mitzrayim without a special need to be there is ‘mentally unstable’.
