JERUSALEM, Dec. 29 (PNA/PTI) — Isreal has approved the release of long-serving 26 Palestinian prisoners, the third batch since August when it agreed to release 104 prisoners as part of confidence building measures to push ahead peace talks with the Palestinians.
The Ministerial Committee for Prisoner Releases approved late last night the release of the 26 Palestinians who were imprisoned before the 1993 Oslo Accords.
The Prime Minister's Office said the prisoners had served sentences of between 19-28 years. (PNA/PTI)
