Hamas fighters said on Sunday they had freed a hostage who has Russian citizenship from Gaza, while Egypt received lists of 13 Israelis and 39 Palestinians scheduled for release during the day as part of a truce between Hamas and Israel, according to Reuters. 

Hamas said it freed the person in appreciation of Moscow's stance on its war with Israel.
