The hostages include many women whose husbands will stay in captivity as their wives and children are released, as well as some children whose parents or parent will remain in Gaza.  There are also a number of children who were taken into captivity alone and will be released.

The list is tentative and not complete as Hamas is set to release several others to complete the number of 50 agreed upon in the first stage of exchanges. Hamas will transfer to Israel a list of the 10 captives to be released Thursday.

I am opposed to a deal at this time. Israel seems to lack any sort of plan to win this war.

Am I correct that Hamas/Nazis choose which hostages they will release and also choose which terrorists Israel needs to release.

Israel needs to do what ever it can at this point to release any/all hostages.
Dealing with the freed terrorists will come at a later stage.
