As a part of the temporary cease fire in Gaza, Hamas has released 24 hostages on the first day, as confirmed by Red Cross organisation.

Fulfilling their end of the deal, mediated by Qatar, Israel freed Palestinian detainees across the Beitunia checkpoint in the West Bank, near Ramallah.

A big crowd had gathered around the Red Cross vehicle at the Beitunia checkpoint in the West Bank, where 39 Palestinians freed from Israeli prison were set to be released.

As per the reports by BBC, the releasing of the Palestinian prisoner was delayed due to the scuffle between some Palestinian men and Israeli authorities.

The crowd surround the vehicle can be heard chanting “where are the prisoner, where are the prisoners?”

In the latest update from Israel, two buses have left Israel’s Ofer prison in the West Bank, and were accompanied by police escort. It is not yet known if the Palestinian people to be released today are on board, but it was reported earlier that they were transferred to the same prison today.
