The Almagor Terror Victims Association on Tuesday slammed a deal signed by Israel and Palestinian security prisoners that ended a 28-day hunger strike by inmates, saying that Israel gave in to terrorists' demands and threatening legal action against the government.

In a press release, the organization's director Meir Indor said that the deal reflected that both the government and the Israel Prison Services are weak. Indor condemned the government for agreeing to release the bodies of terrorist, which he said will be used by the PA to create rallying points for terror.

Indor also stated that the deal was setting a dangerous precedent, as it is the first time that Israel has signed an agreement with terrorist prisoners in Israeli jails and is also the first time a foreign entity (Egypt) has been able to intervene in internal Israeli affairs.
