Sunday morning's cabinet meeting, during which ministers were due to vote on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's plan to release 104 Palestinian prisoners, as well as his referendum bill proposal, was postponed, Israel Radio reported.

The meeting was due to start at 10 a.m. It is unclear when the meeting will commence.

Dozens of representatives of bereaved families, whose loved ones were murdered by the prisoners intended for release, protested outside the Prime Minister's office on Sunday morning, urging him not to free the prisoners.
