June 14, 2014 20:32

In the wake of the presumed kidnapping of three Israeli teens in the West Bank on Thursday, Yuval Diskin, former chief of the Israel Security Services (Shin Bet), spoke out on Saturday against releasing Palestinian terrorists from Israeli jails.

"We should end the policy of exchanging terrorists for kidnapped soldiers, or end the policy of freeing terrorists and we should rather freeze West Bank settlement building during peace talks with the Palestinians," Diskin wrote on his Facebook page.

"The prisoner releases are the principal motivators for further kidnappings," he added.
