Israel is set Wednesday evening to release two out of four Palestinian prisoners who have been exposed to the novel coronavirus, announced the Prisoners’ Affairs Committee.

The Committee said that Israeli authorities are scheduled to release two out of four Palestinian prisoners who have been under quarantine in the Ramla Prison Clinic for ten days as a precautionary measure on suspicion of contracting the virus after coming into contact with an ill Israeli prison officer today evening.   

It elaborated that the two prisoners, identified as residents of the West Bank city of Nablus, would be dropped off at Beit Sira military checkpoint, west of Ramallah city. Awaiting for them at the checkpoint would be Palestinian medics who would examine them and place them under quarantine until their test results prove negative.
