Released 14-year-old Palestinian recounts Oct 7 inside Israeli jail

Jerusalem (AFP) – Ahmed Salaima speaks about what he witnessed in prison in Israel, after his release under a truce in the Israel-Hamas war which has entered its sixth day. So far, 60 Israeli hostages have been freed from Gaza under the terms of the deal, with a Russian-Israeli, 20 Thai and one Filipino freed outside the scope of the deal. In return, 180 Palestinian prisoners — all women and minors — have been released. The truce agreement has brought a temporary halt to fighting sparked by Hamas’s October 7 attack, which killed 1,200 people in Israel, mostly civilians, according to Israeli officials.
