Report: No Agreement on Freeing Israeli Arabs


Senior diplomatic sources say there is no agreement between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel or the United States about the release of Israeli Arab security prisoners within the framework of the PA prisoner release approved by the cabinet on Sunday as part of the package to renew direct talks with the PA, according to a Monday-morning report by Kol Yisrael government radio.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu determined the release of 14 Israeli security prisoners would be discussed separately by the cabinet, as needed. The sources found it difficult to explain the determination.
