Prisoner release protested by bereaved Israeli families

( Several families with relatives killed in Palestinian terrorist attacks protested the Israeli government’s planned release this week of the second set of 26 prisoners to the Palestinian Authority as part of the deal to free 104 prisoners for Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations. 

Members of the bereaved families held a protest rally Monday organized by the Almagor Terror Victims Association. More than 4,500 people attended. “It appears as though as of today negotiations are stuck and we are continuing to free terrorists. We are simply shooting ourselves in the foot,” said Yossi Mendelevitch, one of the prominent activists among the bereaved families, Israel Hayom reported.
