Victims' Families Meeting With Peres

Representatives of families of terror victims will meet with President Shimon Peres Monday afternoon to express their feelings and opinions against the release of over 1,000 terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit. The meeting will take place at 4:30 Monday afternoon at Peres' residence.

Peres said that he felt it was his obligation to meet the families. “The President's house is open to all Israelis and it is my obligation to allow Israelis to express their pain and hurt, especially in a situation like this,” Peres said in a statement.
