(REUTERS AND JPOST.COM STAFF via Docs Talk) Revelers in West Bank, Gaza cities fire shots in the air, honk horns to celebrate pending release of 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.

Palestinians took to the streets in Palestinian cities from Ramallah to Jabalya in northern Gaza to celebrate news of a prisoner swap in exchange for captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit.
The agreement, approved at an emergency cabinet session Tuesday night, included the release of more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners. Family members of prisoners fired shots in the air in West Bank cities, celebrating in the streets of Hebron, Nablus, and Ramallah.
Doc seems to think the deal might go sour.
