Israel Frees 26 Terrorists for Peace Talks

Convoy of released Arab terrorists

Two convoys left the Ayalon prison on Tuesday night at around 9 pm, carry 26 terrorists who were released as the first part of an Israeli gesture to the Palestinian Authority.

One convoy, carrying 15 terrorists traveled to the Erez junction, near Gaza, where those terrorists were released. The second convoy, carrying 11 terrorists, went to Ofer prison, and then on to the Beitunia checkpoint. The conveys reached their destinations after midnight.

Palestinian Authority Arabs have gathered to greet the terrorists upon their arrival. Over 1000 Arabs have gathered at the Muqata in Ramallah to greet the freed terrorists, and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas will be leading a welcoming ceremony.

Hamas has issued a ban on Fatah (PLO) organized celebrations in Gaza, and instead will be holding their own celebration event later in the week.

Correcting a mistake made in the many previous terrorist releases, Israel decided to use windowless vans to transport the terrorists, so at least within Israel controlled areas, they couldn’t make their victory displays to the media. Israel also released the prisoners late at night, in order to minimize attendance at the Palestinian Authority celebration parties.

  1. In the meantime between 13th August and next release, I sincerely hope an event will arise in Israel's and Mr. BN's favour to dishonour the rest of these releases. It galls me that Erekat has publicly stated on Facebook to Palestinianize Israel, before the release of terrorists. The arrogance of the so called Palestinians is humiliating and foul. Yet again yesterday more rockets have been fired at Eilat and injuries ensued. The demand for the Temple of the Mount just as terrorists were to being released, clearly shows Abbas does not intend any form of peace. Blow loud Israel's Shofar's over New Year and bring down Al Aqsa Mosque as were the walls of Jericho.

  2. Benjamin Fox says:

    If I were PM, I'd send them all back to where ever with a bullet in the back of their heads like arabs do to Jews, shows a real sign of weakness and has to stop or the enemy will get stronger. Call on the name of your God, repent and trust in Him, there is no other way.

  3. Netananyahu has not gonads, Israel is loosing the war, it is like Herodes time, the Romans conquered the Israelites, now the Palestinian are conquering Israel, it is better that the jews in Israel should loock other places ti live, it is reality.

  4. no. no, Trust in the Lord G-d of Israel and give thanks to Him for having the land which He has promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and his descendants. Psalm 105

  5. With all my heart, I wish only peace for Israel.
