Israel Prison Service commences release process of 39 Palestinian prisoners

The Israel Prison Service has received a list of 39 Palestinian terror convicts who will be released today as part of the deal with Hamas that will also see 13 hostages released from Gaza, according to an official Israeli source.

This is the first day out of four in which such exchanges are expected to be held, with additional days of ceasefire possible if Hamas agrees to release more hostages.

According to the source, the Prison Service has started processing the 39 underage and female inmates slated for release later today. They will be moved to Ofer Prison in the West Bank shortly before noon, ahead of their release to the West Bank or East Jerusalem.

They will go free only after the 13 Israeli hostages are released and properly identified.
