Bereaved Families Ask Lapid and Perry: Don't Release Terrorists


Members of the Almagor terror victims organization, who lost their relatives in terror attacks, met on Thursday in Tel Aviv with Ministers Yair Lapid and Yaakov Perry of Yesh Atid.

The bereaved families asked the two ministers to reconsider the planned release of the fourth batch of terrorists from Israeli prisons. Israel agreed to release 104 terrorists in four batches as a “gesture” to Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas so he would hold peace talks with Israel. Three releases have already gone through.
