Overnight Israel released 26 murdering terrorists due to US pressure and Palestinian Authority demands.
Three of the terrorists were released to Gaza, 18 to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, and five to eastern Jerusalem, including one to the Old City of Jerusalem.
Appeals by bereaved families were unable to block the move.
These 26 terrorists had murdered approximately 100 people, Jews and Arabs, and wounded more in their various terror attacks.
A fourth release of more terrorists is expected within a few months.
