Palestinian women holding pictures of their imprisoned sons called for their release during a demonstration at the International Red Cross headquarters in Gaza City on October 17, 2011. Israel publicized on Sunday the names of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners it will free in exchange for Schalit.

In Gaza city, a Palestinian prints posters in preparation for the prisoner swap on October 16, 2011. The posters read, "Loyalty to the free".
