Following the High Court of Justice's decision Tuesday to reject the Almagor Terror Victims' Association's petition against the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners ahead of peace talks, Bayit Yehudi MK Yoni Shetboun, who participated in protests against freeing terrorists, said he finds it unfortunate that bereaved families are almost alone in their fight against the prisoner release, calling the situation a "moral failure."

"MKs and ministers must do some soul-searching and figure out what are the values with which this country should be led," Shetboun said.
