Palestinians freed from Israeli prison arrive in Ramallah

Palestinian inmates released from Israeli prison have arrived in Ramallah from Ofer Prison in the West Bank, Palestinian media outlets report.

A bus carrying 30 former inmates is welcomed with fanfare in the city’s central square, the official Palestinian Wafa news outlet reports.

A video shows one family’s tearful reunion.

The group is released as part of a deal that is supposed to see 10 Israeli hostages released daily for 30 Palestinians, though only 8 Israelis were released Thursday.

An Al Jazeera report claims the bus was hit with tear gas, and some onboard required medical attention.
