The operation, which will be carried out in stages, will begin publishing this Friday the first 13 hostages, women and children kidnapped by Hamas –in which the Red Crescent will carry out a medical examination beforehand – in exchange for 39 prisoners imprisoned in Israel.

The head of the Palestinian Authority’s prisons, Qadura Fares, says: “As soon as Israel receives its prisoners at the Rafah crossing, the prison authority will hand over the prisoners.” And this senior Palestinian official reveals that the exchange will take place at the Ofer military camp, very close to Ramallah, will take place.

“The 150 Palestinian prisoners on the list to be released come from Jerusalem and the West Bank,” he clarifies. And that’s what he explains in this first phase of the ceasefire 24 women and 15 minors convicted of terrorism in Israel are released. Nevertheless, according to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Association, none of them have committed blood crimes in their history.
