Bereaved families protested Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's intention to release 104 Palestinian prisoners as a gesture to the Palestinians ahead of the resumption of peace talks, Channel 2 reported.

Dozens of protesters gathered outside the Prime Minister's Office on Sunday morning, holding photos of loved ones killed by the prisoners intended for release, to call on the government not to approve the gesture.

"The prime minister is encouraging terror by releasing terrorists and murderers," Channel 2 quoted protesters as saying.

"The message here is that murderers will eventually be released and that terrorism is worthwhile," a spokesman for terror victims association Almagor said.
