Cabinet Decides to Harshen Hamas Jail Conditions


Ministers in the Knesset Security Cabinet on Tuesday afternoon discussed the operation to return the three kidnapped students, and decided to allow the internal security minister to make the prison conditions of jailed Hamas terrorists harsher. According to the decision, Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich would be given a freer hand against jailed Hamas terrorists in response to the abduction that is believed to be the work of Hamas.

The Israeli Prison Services (IPS) has already announced that visits to jailed terrorists will be halted until the boys are found.
