Israel releases a list of 300 Palestinian prisoners and detainees who could be released as part of the deal to free Israeli hostages held by Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza.
The publication gives members of the public the opportunity to appeal against the release of specific prisoners.
Under the deal, Israel will release “up to” 150 security prisoners in exchange for “up to” 50 hostages in first 4 days, plus more to be released according to the same ratio out of the list of 300 prisoners if further hostages are freed.
The vast majority, 287 of the 300 security prisoners scheduled for possible release, are males aged 18 and under — most of them held for rioting and rock-throwing in the West Bank or East Jerusalem.
The other 13 prisoners are adult women, most of them convicted of attempted terror stabbings.
