Two Afghan prisoners, Abdul Zahir Saber and Abdul Karim, who were held in U.S. custody at Guantanamo Bay for over 14 years, have been released from house arrest in Oman.

The release was attributed to the efforts of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as stated by Taliban interior ministry spokesman Abdul Mateen Qani.

Qani said, “As a result of the efforts of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, after many years in prison and imposed restrictions will be removed, he will return to his homeland.”

The men were initially transferred to Oman in 2017 after spending years in Guantanamo, and they were under house arrest with travel restrictions.

The Guantanamo Bay detention center was established in 2002 following the 9/11 attacks, initially to hold individuals suspected of ties to al-Qaida or the Taliban.

Both men were arrested by American forces in 2002 and subsequently spent years in detention before their recent release.
