Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sent letters to those whose lost family members in attacks perpetrated by terrorists set to be released in return for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, the Prime Minister's Office said Monday morning.

Netanyahu told the bereaved families "that he shares their pain in seeing their loved ones' murderers go free in return for Gilad."

The High Court of Justice ruled on Sunday that it will hear a petition at noon on Monday against the release of 1,027 Palestinian prisoners involved in the exchange deal to release Gilad.

The petition was filed by the Almagor Terror Victims Association.
