Almagor Appeal Rejected
Israel National News
Supreme Court Justice Miriam Naor has decided to reject a last-minute petition by the Almagor organization for victims of terrorism. The petition called for the planned release of 87 terrorist prisoners, many of them convicted of attempted murder, to be postponed until after a hearing on the matter.
Almagor has turned to Attorney General Menachem Mazuz as well, asking Mazuz to delay the release until after a hearing. “The release of terrorists like these—dangerous terrorists—who aren’t serving a life sentence only because they didn’t achieve their goals, is a serious danger to Israeli citizens,” the group said. The terrorists never expressed regret for their actions, Almagor spokesmen added, and are likely to continue their attempts to murder Israelis after being released.
