Prisoners being swapped for Israeli kids include terrorist who blew her own FACE OFF with bomb…& wanted free plastic op

A TERRORIST who blew her face off in an attack is among the Palestinian prisoners set to be swapped with Israeli hostages under the truce deal.

Asraa Jabas, 38, suffered serious injuries after she blew up a gas tank at a checkpoint near Jerusalem – in an attack that left a police officer injured.

Marah Bakeer could also be freed alongside other prisoners

She was sentenced to eleven years behind bars after she detonated a gas canister in her car when she was pulled over near Ma’ale Adumim.

The would-be suicide bomber sparked outrage after she was granted free plastic surgery twice – and had the nerve to apply for a third one to have her nose rebuilt.

Jabas is on the list of the the 300 Palestinian women and children who could be freed from Israeli prisons, under the four-day ceasefire.

Under Israeli law, the public has 24 hours to object to any release.

According to Israeli media, she successfully underwent surgery on her hands twice and applied for a third one claiming she was having difficulties breathing through her nose.

But her request was rejected after officials deemed the operation was “not necessary to maintain her health”.

In 2015, Jabas detonated the device hidden in her bag after police officer Moshe Chen stopped her for acting suspiciously.

The blast attack caused serious burns to his face and chest.

They were both taken to hospital for treatment.

Hearing that Jabas had applied for a grant for a surgery from prison he said at the time: “I have post-traumatic stress disorder and this woman who caused this is in prison getting an education and now applying for cosmetic surgery.

“Now this terrorist wants to do surgery, what’s the conclusion? Every man who is going to carry out an attack, goes to prison, earns a degree and comes out handsome too.”

Another Palestinian terrorist who could be freed under the four-day halt is Marah Bakeer who was arrested in 2015 for stabbing a border police cop.

Bakeer, who was only 16 at the time, was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.

Other Palestinian prisoners on Israel’s list are mainly teenagers arrested over the past year for rock-throwing and other minor offences.

The deal sees a four-day halt in fighting and the release of 50 Israeli hostages.

In exchange, around 150 Palestinian women and children will be freed from Israeli prisons at a ratio of 3:1.

Under the agreement around 12 hostages are set to be released per day in phases.

The Israeli PM said the call was a “difficult decision but it’s a right decision.”

But Benjamin Netanyahu was adamant Israel‘s mission remains the same and vowed the offensive will continue once the ceasefire expires.

He said: “We are at war and we will continue the war until we achieve all our goals.

“To destroy Hamas, return all our hostages and ensure that no entity in Gaza can threaten Israel.”

Hamas released a statement in response welcoming the “humanitarian truce” but noted, “Our hands remain on the trigger.”

Hamas said in its statement: “As we announce the striking of a truce agreement, we affirm that our fingers remain on the trigger, and our victorious fighters will remain on the lookout to defend our people and defeat the occupation.”

About 40 children are thought to be kept captive by Hamas
