Israel on Tuesday released 26 Palestinian prisoners as part efforts to restart Mideast peace talks.
After departing on buses from Israeli jails overnight, the prisoners received welcomes upon their return to the West Bank and Gaza.
Ahmed Shihadeh is among the release list.
Serving a lifetime sentence, Shehadeh's only hope to see freedom was through a political agreement.
Now he is back.
