The group of released prisoners was taken out of Israeli territory via the Kerem Shalom crossing point with the Gaza Strip, according to the Gaza crossing authority and an AFP journalist. Once in Palestinian territory, they were treated at Rafah hospital, in the south of the besieged territory, according to the same sources.
