Eve of Yom Kippur, Jewish day of atonement.
A very emotional, excited crowd of a few hundred Palestinians celebrate in the early hours of Wednesday, August 14, 2013, the homecoming of the first 26 Palestinian security prisoners released from Israeli jails, at the Muqataa in Ramallah, West Bank.
This was the first stage of releasing a total 104 Palestinian and Israeli-Arab prisoners as a goodwill gesture by Israel to the Palestinian Authority, on eve of renewed peace negotiations.
While in Israeli society, the prisoners are identified “with blood on their hands,” having been arrested for violent acts of terror against Israeli citizens, within the Palestinian discourse, the men are seen as freedom fighters for the cause of their people.
