A broad variety of stories feature on the front of Sunday’s papers – many include the latest on the situation in the Middle East as 39 Palestinian prisoners were released on Saturday night in exchange for 13 Israeli hostages and four Thai nationals
The Sunday Times carries an interview with relative of one of the Israelis set free on Friday. Mayan Moshe describes how her 72-year-old aunt Adina thought she was being led away to be executed when she was taken out of the Hamas tunnels she had been kept in for seven weeks. Ms Moshe realized she was being freed only when she saw the Red Cross buses.
The Sunday Telegraph says emotional scenes have been playing out in Israeli hospitals and medical centers as families were and continue to be reunited after the hostages’ release.
Continuing with domestic news “Stop small boats or we’re sunk”, is the Sunday Express headline. It says Conservative MPs have told Rishi Sunak unless the small boats in the English Channel are stopped by the next general election the party faces “catastrophe” at the polls. One MP said eight out of ten voters he spoke to demand to know what was being done.
Finally, the Sun on Sunday previews a new Royal book out later next week about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In the report, the tabloid claims King Charles called the Duke of Sussex “a fool” after the pair appeared in a Netflix documentary last year. Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on reports.
