In the framework of the Israeli humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians, on the occasion of the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, the IDF and the Prison Authority is releasing seven Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails.
The prisoners, who are carrying out sentences due to their participation in disturbances, illegal residency in Israel and the possession of weapons without a license, were supposed to be released in the next two months. It was decided, however, to shorten their sentences in a gesture for the holiday.
