Israel has named 300 Palestinians it will release under an agreement with Hamas.

Israel’s Justice Ministry has published a list of 300 Palestinian prisoners to be released as part of a deal with Hamas to free Israeli hostages from the Gaza Strip.

The list of Palestinian prisoners includes only women and teenagers under 18 years of age. All Palestinians on the list could be released if the deal is extended beyond the first four days of the ceasefire, which would include the release of 50 Israeli hostages.

Earlier, Hamas said it had reached an agreement with Israel to establish a four-day truce in the Gaza Strip with a cessation of all hostilities and the release of 50 Israeli hostages in exchange for 150 Palestinian prisoners.
