Palestinian resistance and global protests at the assault on Gaza have pushed the Israeli state to release some of those it keeps hostage in its jails.

Israel has so far released 150 kidnapped Palestinian prisoners, many of them children, in exchange for Israelis held by Hamas.

Palestinians took to the streets to welcome back those who Israel had stolen from their families.

They waved Palestinian and Hamas flags as they celebrated. Yet even these moments of joy were marred by Israeli terror.

Israeli soldiers fired teargas at families and supporters waiting to greet released prisoners in some places.

Many returnees were teenagers when Israel snatched them for “crimes” including stone-throwing, vandalism and supporting Hamas.

Most were tried by the Israeli army. Adolescent military courts only exist for Palestinian children. There is no equivalent for Israeli children.

In many instances, the children were forced to sign confession documents in Hebrew, a language which many don’t understand.

Israel was also forced to release some of those it says committed more serious crimes, including attempted murder.

Shorouq Dwayyat was arrested in 2016 for allegedly trying to stab an Israeli settler. And Nurhan Awad was accused of stabbing a man with scissors and sentenced to 15 years.

Both have been released. Others now free include leading figures in the resistance and some of those related to them. But thousands more Palestinians remain trapped in Israeli prisons. They too must be freed.
