Almagor Appeals Against Prisoner Swap
Israel National News
The Almagor “Victims of Terror” organization has lodged an appeal with the high court of justice against Israel’s planned prisoner exchange with Hizbullah. Almagor’s attorney, Ze’ev Desburg, is arguing in the appeal that the High Court has already given an opinion in the past that two of the prisoners slated for release, Mustafa Dirani and Sheik Abdel Karem Obeid, constitute a serious threat to the state of Israel and are therefore ineligible for release. Almagor further claims, bolstered by the testimony of relatives of people murdered by terrorists released in previous releases, that the released prisoners pose a threat of becoming repeat offenders.
