Almagor Urges Ministers to Halt Terrorist Release
Israel National News
The Almagor Terror Victims’ group on Sunday asked Science and Technology Minister Daniel Hershkowitz to attempt to prevent the release of a number of terrorists who were directly involved in terror attacks in which Jews were killed. The terrorists are to be released as part of the deal that brough Gilad Shalit home.
Among the terrorists to be released is Osama Salam Salah Abu Salah, who conspired to kidnap Israelis and to shoot at IDF soldiers. Salah’s gang was found to have obtained weapons and was actively planning attacks. Also to be released is Ahmed Halaf, a member of the Tanzim terror gang who was involved in a shooting attack on an IDF base, and in a shooting attack on the town of Psagot. Others are guilty of similar crimes. Almagor has asked Hershkowitz to marshal other ministers and halt the release of the terrorists, set for Sunday morning.
