“Almagor,” an organization representing victims of terrorism, has written a letter to Defense Minister Ehud Barak demanding that he release the names of Arabs transferred from Gaza earlier in the week. Group members explained that they had received information according to which some of the Arabs were terrorists who attacked Jewish towns in the past.

In their letter to Barak, group members said that Israel had given in to pressure to help Fatah. However, they said, “these members of Fatah … many of them took part in acts of terrorism against Israel and her citizens.” The group argued that 30 of the 60 Arabs taken by Israel to Egypt on Thursday were involved in terrorist activities in Gaza.
