    (ANSAmed) - GAZA - One of the Palestinians sentenced for the killing of Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni fled overseas, said Gaza agency 'Akhbar Falastin', according to which, a few days ago, Mahmud al-Salfiti took advantage of a permit granted during Ramadan fasting to leave the Gaza Strip.

    The agency added he might be in Syria. Hamas did not comment on the matter.

    Four members of a local Salafi cell had been setenced for the kidnapping and the killing of Arrigoni.
    Two of them, al-Salfiti and Tamer al-Hasasna, had been given a life-sentence, later commuted in 15 years in jail.
    One of their associates escaped arrest while a fourth member of the group who has already served a lighter sentence, was freed.
    The only person currently in jail is al-Hasasna.
    Arrigoni was very popular in Gaza because of his activities for the local population. His memory is kept alive by a nursery in Khan Yunes and a restaurant in Gaza named after him.
