High Court to Hear Almagor Petition Monday


The High Court will hear petitions against the release of over 1,000 terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit on Monday afternoon. The main petition, representing most of the opposing families, will be presented by the Almagor terror victims' organization.

In its petition, Almagor says that “this release, if it goes through, will be unprecedented in Israeli history. We ask that it be suspended because of the emotional damage to the victims of these attacks and their families, and because of the additional security threat to citizens and soldiers that will result from the release.”
