Shalit Activists Block Bus of Prisoner Relatives

Dozens of activists from the Task Force for the Release of abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit blocked buses carrying relatives of security prisoners from approaching the Shata Prison inthe Beit She'an Valley in eastern Israel. The activists stopped the buses near the Jezreel Valley Junction.

The demonstrators demanded that the security prisoners not be given the kind of treatment that Shalit is being denied. Among the demonstrators was Miki Goldwasser, whose son Ehud was captured and murdered by Hizbullah terrorists in 2006, setting off the Second Lebanon War.
