The Palestinian Authority has submitted to Israel a list of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners which they request to be released from Israeli prisons, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.
According to the report, Justice Ministry Director-General Moshe Shilo will be responding on Thursday with a list of prisoners which Israel is willing to release, and next week Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will be making a final decision on the matter.
Israel is preparing to conduct another prisoner release before the US-sponsored Mideast Summit takes place at the end of November, as a goodwill gesture to the Palestinians.
