Israel releases 30 detainees, including 15 women and 15 children

At dawn today, Thursday, the Israeli occupation authorities released 30 detainees, including 15 women and 15 children, from the “Ofer” military prison, which was established on citizens’ lands in the town of Beitunia, west of Ramallah, and from the “Al-Maskobiyya” detention center in occupied Jerusalem, as part of the sixth batch of “Exchange deal.”

Before the release of the detainees, the Israeli occupation forces stormed the neighborhoods near the Ofer military prison, all the way to the schools roundabout in the center of the town.

A bus and vehicles belonging to the International Committee of the Red Cross transported 15 of the released detainees from the “Ofer” military prison to Ramallah, while 8 Jerusalemite detainees were released from “Al-Maskobiyya” to their homes. In addition,  7 female detainees from within the 1948 territories were released.

Earlier today, the occupation police stormed the homes of the families of a number of Jerusalemite detainees prior to their release, and warned them against holding any celebrations or gatherings.

The Prisoners' and Ex-Prisoners' Affairs Authority and the Prisoners' Club announced in a joint statement the names of the sixth batch of female detainees and child detainees who were released, within the terms of the "humanitarian truce" agreement.

The statement stated that all the female detainees were arrested after the seventh of last October, with the exception of the detainee Asmaa Abu Takfa from within the 1948 territories.
