A group of former leaders of security agencies and captains of Israeli industry launched a new peace initiative at a press conference Tel Aviv on Wednesday, calling on the government to make large-scale territorial concessions and reach a solution to the Palestinian refugee problem in exchange for peace.

The group of some 40 prominent personalities includes former Mossad head Danny Yatom, former Shin Bet head Yaakov Perry, former IDF chief Amnon Lipkin- Shahak, former head of the Shin Bet Ami Ayalon, former Labor Party chief Amram Mitzna, Idan Ofer, owner of the ZIM shipping company, and Yuval Rabin, son of slain prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.

The plan has been devised “in light of the dramatic events in the Middle East” and is aimed at urging the government to “immediately renew peace talks,” a statement issued by the group said.
