PA Minister: There Will be 'Protests' if Terrorists Not Released

A Palestinian Authority (PA) minister warned on Thursday that terrorists imprisoned in Israel will protest if Israel does not release the fourth batch of terrorists it agreed to release as a “gesture” to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The PA’s Minister of Prisoner Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, said in a statement quoted by the Ma’an news agency that a group of terrorist prisoners had confirmed their support for Abbas in his persistence on releasing the fourth group of terrorists.
