AG Requests to Cancel Re-Release of Shalit Terrorists


Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein submitted a request on Tuesday to cancel the re-release of ten of the terrorists released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner swap, who were recently recaptured in Operation Brother's Keeper. 

The state attorney has requested to cancel the conditional release of the prisoners and to return them to jail, where they would serve the remainder of their sentence from where they left off at the Shalit deal. All of the prisoners had been given a life sentence for their crimes. The argument behind the request is that the terrorists breached the conditions of their release, including through committed crimes.
