      Peretz: Hope the 'Heavy Price' Pays Off


      Environment Minister Amir Peretz (Hatnua) referred on Thursday to next week’s planned release of 26 terrorists, saying he hoped that the "heavy price" paid by the state of Israel will pay off in the end.

      "We cannot continue in a reality where there is a lack of stabilization," Peretz told Channel 2 News. He also praised the IDF for deploying an Iron Dome anti-missile system to his home town of Sderot.
