Today, Sunday, Israel released 39 Palestinian child prisoners within the terms of the truce agreement, which entered its third day in the Gaza Strip, and the release was accompanied by attacks by the occupation army targeting gatherings to receive released prisoners.

Hours after the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, released a third batch of detainees in Gaza, including 13 Israelis, the Israel Prison Administration Authority announced the release of 39 Palestinian prisoners, all of them children.

Al-Jazeera correspondent said that the occupation forces fired bullets and tear gas canisters in Beitunia near Ramallah to prevent Palestinians from filming a bus carrying liberated children.

The occupation army dispersed hundreds of Palestinians who gathered outside Ofer military prison, west of Ramallah, who were waiting for the release of prisoners, and the Palestinian Red Crescent said in a brief statement that its teams dealt with two injuries in the area.

On the other hand, Al Jazeera correspondent said that the prisoner boy Amin Abbasi arrived at his home in the town of Silwan in occupied Jerusalem, after the Israeli occupation police released him this evening, and this came after the occupation police beat members of the Abbasi family before his release.

The Commission for Prisoners and Ex-Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners' Club announced earlier on Sunday the names of the third batch of Palestinian prisoners released today, and all the names on the list of 39 child prisoners, including 21 from Jerusalem, and one from the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, and the rest are distributed over the West Bank governorates.

Qatari mediation efforts - in cooperation with Egypt and the United States - succeeded in reaching an agreement on a humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip that will last for 4 days, which can be extended, which began on Friday.

The agreement included the exchange of 50 civilian women and children prisoners in the Gaza Strip in the first phase, in exchange for the release of a number of Palestinian women and children held in Israeli prisons.

The truce also allowed for the entry of more humanitarian convoys and relief aid, including fuel for humanitarian needs.
