6 Recaptured Terrorists to be Returned to Prison

Israel’s special pardons commission ordered on Tuesday that six terrorists who were freed in the Shalit deal in October of 2011 and were recaptured during Operation Brother’s Keeper be returned to prison and serve their full sentence.

In its decision, the commission accepted the Attorney General's request to cancel the release of the six, all residents of eastern Jerusalem.
