Palestinian terror convicts to be freed said to include stabbers, East Jerusalemites

The Palestinian terror convicts Israel intends to free today include inmates who committed stabbing attacks against Israelis, and some are from East Jerusalem, according to Army Radio.

They consist of 24 women and 15 minors, the Reuters news agency reports, citing an unnamed Palestinian official.

It is the first batch out of at least 150 security prisoners set for release in the coming days as part of a deal with Hamas for the release of at least 50 hostages held in Gaza and a four-day ceasefire, which can be extended if more abductees are freed.
