Israel has received the list of final 11 hostages set to be released today after 52 days in the clutches of terrorists in the Gaza Strip, Hebrew media outlets report.

The reports say the families haven’t yet been notified whether their loved ones are on the list.

Hamas has freed 39 abductees in the first three days of a temporary ceasefire deal, according to which 50 will be let go in four days in return for 150 Palestinian security prisoners. The deal can be extended by a day for every 10 additional hostages set free.

Hamas has expressed a desire to extend the truce, and the sides are reportedly negotiating such an extension.
