Gaza says they'll allow Fatah members to return. But they might arrest them.

In 2007, some 70 Fatah members fled Gaza in the wake of the violent Hamas takeover of the sector, and they went to Egypt.

Egypt is now planning to ship them back, and Hamas interior minister says that whoever wants to return to Gaza is welcome to do so.

But, of course, if Hamas determines that they were involved in any criminal activities, they'll be put into prison, he added.

Interestingly, he didn't say that Hamas would welcome back the residents of Jordan's Jerash "Gaza" camp, who actually lived in Gaza and would love to return.
