On Wednesday evening, Hamas will provide Israel with a list of ten hostages expected to be released on Thursday, under the prisoner swap agreement approved early Wednesday morning.

The agreement will see the release of over 100 convicted terrorists, in exchange for civilians -mostly women and children - who were kidnapped by Hamas on the morning of October 7. The agreement also includes a four-day ceasefire and a promise that Israel will not use surveillance drones during the break in the fighting.

The ten hostages will be transferred to Israel on Thursday morning, via the Red Cross. Later, terrorists will be released.

The ceasefire will take effect between 6:30 and 7:00 on Thursday morning, in accordance with operational considerations. On the fourth day of the ceasefire, Hamas is expected to release an additional 20 hostages.

On Wednesday morning, Israel's Justice Ministry released a list of 300 terrorists who are in line to be released as part of the prisoner swap.

Among the terrorists to be released are the terrorist who stabbed and severely injured a resident of Bnei Brak in a Jerusalem terror attack; the female terrorist who attempted to stab a Border Police officer near Jerusalem's Old City; the terrorist who carried out the shooting attack near the grave of Shimon Hatzadik, severely injuring two civilians; and the terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack near Rachel's Tomb, severely injuring a female soldier
