Last female prisoner in
By JPOST.COM STAFF
The last Palestinian woman to be released as part of the deal to free 20 prisoners in exchange for a video that confirms a sign of life from kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit was making her way to the Gaza Strip through the Erez Crossing on Sunday.
Israel released 19 of the women on Friday morning, 18 to the West Bank and one to Gaza. Sunday's release came after it turned out that a prisoner released Wednesday was finishing her sentence anyway and would therefore have been released regardless of the deal.
