Hamdallah expects 2nd release of prisoners in September

Sept. 1, 2013 8:42 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 2, 2013 8:18 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Caretaker Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said Sunday that Israel may release more veteran Palestinian prisoners by the end of September.

"It is possible that the second batch of pre-Oslo prisoners will be released before the end of this month," Hamdallah said during a tour of Salfit.

Israel has agreed to release a total of 104 prisoners, most of who were jailed before the 1993 Oslo peace accords, in stages depending on progress in the new peace talks.

The first batch of 26 prisoners was released on Aug. 14.

Hamdallah called on the international community to support Palestinian efforts in negotiations to help them achieve an independent state on 1967 borders.
