Some 30 activists were demonstrating outside the President's Residence in Jerusalem Saturday night, Army Radio reported.

They were reportedly demanding that Jewish prisoners sentenced for attacks on Arabs also be released within the framework of the agreement to release captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit.

The legal department in the President's Bureau begun dealing  on Saturday with pardons for Palestinian prisoners who are to be released in exchange for Schalit.

If all goes according to plan, Schalit will be returned to Israel on Tuesday after more than five years in captivity.
