PA: Israel Offered to Free 400 Terrorists; Bennett: No Way


Officials with the Palestinian Authority (PA) claimed on Saturday that Israel had offered to release 400 terrorists from its prisons so that peace talks continue, eliciting a response from Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett, who said that such a release will never take place.

According to the PA officials, who were not named, Israel and the United States had offered the release of the 400 terrorists, which would come in addition to the fourth batch of 104 terrorists it agreed to release when talks began, in exchange for the PA agreeing to continue the talks for a period of six months.
