Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu informed Speaker Nabih Berri and Premier Najib Miqati to inform them that Omar will arrive in Beirut aboard a Turkish plane on Saturday night.
Omar will return to Lebanon on board a Turkish private jet, the National News Agency also reported.
Miqati called on Davutoglu to redouble his efforts to release the rest of the abductees, the PM’s office announced.
Doha-based channel, Al-Jazeera, broadcast a video showing Omar on the Turkish as-Salama crossing on the Syrian border.
The captors said in a statement that Omar was released as a “goodwill gesture” in response to a request by a group of Lebanese Muslim clerics.
The statement said that the fate of the remaining captives would be determined “after sending letters to countries neighboring Syria.”
