Israel will release a "limited" number of Palestinian prisoners, government minister Yuval Steinitz said on Saturday, a day after the US announced direct peace talks will resume between the two sides.
"There will be a limited release of prisoners," Steinitz, the minister in charge of international relations, strategic affairs and intelligence, told public radio without giving numbers.
Steinitz did not say when the release would take place, but said it would be "in stages."
"There will definitely be a certain gesture here," he added.
