The source said that the Yemeni ambassador to Jordan Hussein bin Taher visited the two Yemeni lawmakers, Haza'a Al-Maswari and Abdul Khaliq Bin Shaihoon, at the Crown Hotel in Jordon's capital, Amman, after the Zionist entity released them early on Wednesday.

The source pointed out that there is another Yemeni called "al-Qotaib" , a resident in Turkey, was among those released, and believed that he returned with the Turkish delegation, while the third lawmaker Mohammed al-Hazmi still in the custody of the Zionist entity.

The three Yemeni lawmakers were among those activists, who were arrested during the assault on the Gaza aid flotilla.

The two other lawmakers were transferred to Jordan early Wednesday as a prelude to sending them home.

The transfer of the two lawmakers released came as Israel started to release peace activists who were onboard the foltilla that was raided while on way to deliver aid for the people in the Palestinian Gaza strip who have been under Israeli blockade since 2007.

On Tuesday, the Israeli Army Radio said 250 of the activists had been deported.

Ten activists were killed and many others were injured in the much-condemned Israeli raid on the convoy on Monday.
