The prosecution considered demanding the death penalty for the Fogel family murderers, the Almagor Terror Victims Association said in a statement Monday.

The Association said that sources claimed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak intervened, and "sweetened the punishment of the vile murderers."
