Ministers May Approve Prisoner Release This Sunday


Ministers are expected to approve the release of 26 prisoners as a gesture to the Palestinian Authority on Sunday. On Wednesday, the State Attorney's Office filed its response to the Supreme Court on the petition of bereaved families against the release of terrorist killers. The Almagor terrorist victims association said the release of prisoners was an affront to those injured in attacks and the families of those killed. The State Attorney's Office replied that the release is purely out of political considerations and therefore the court should not intervene.
