The first buses with the prisoners rolled out of the inner courtyard of the Ketziot prison in Israel's southern Negev desert shortly after 0400 GMT as dawn broke.

"Today we are releasing 429 prisoners," Yaron Zamir, a spokesman for the Israeli prison authority said.

He said 20 of the freed detainees would return to their homes in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, with the rest going to the occupied West Bank.
