Johnson’s Release

This is wonderful news. At the time of his kidnapping, Johnston was the only western journalist permanently based in Gaza. His kidnapping has had a serious effect on our knowledge of the region, and the wider conflict. Something that benefits no one. This line is also interesting:

Mr Johnston said Hamas’s seizure of power in Gaza and its subsequent pledge to improve security in the territory had facilitated his release.

“The kidnappers seemed very comfortable and very secure in their operation until… a few weeks ago, when Hamas took charge of the security operation here,” he said.

It seems as if the Hamas pressure may have had a real hand in securing the release.
