Ron Kerman, who lost his daughter Tal in a terrorist attack, spoke to Arutz Sheva on Tuesday and accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of breaking promises he made to bereaved families. Many families saw their loved ones’ murderers released from prison in exchange for captive soldier Gilad Shalit, and were told that soon the government would release the Shamgar Report, which would discuss Israel’s response to any future situations in which a soldier was held by terrorists.
However, he said, “in the meantime, a year has passed and the report remains secret. Why?”
Netanyahu “promised to protect Israeli citizens, but in reality, did the opposite,” Kerman accused. “This deal hurt our deterrence and taught terrorists how to get their friends out of jail.”
