Bennett demands government reassess prisoner releases

September 22, 2013 20:40

The government must reconsider releasing prisoners following terror attacks this week, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, a member of the security cabinet, wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Sunday night.

"Under the auspices of celebrating peace talks, Sukkot has turned into a holiday of harming IDF soldiers," Bennett wrote.

The Bayit Yehudi leader pointed out that Israel's agreement to release more Palestinian prisoners is conditional on progress in negotiations.

"There is no doubt that there have been unfortunate developments since the talks began, which require the government to rethink its path," he wrote. "The answer to terror must be a war on the murderers and not dialogue with those who encourage them."

Bennett sent a copy to Government Secretary Avihai Mandelblit, as well
