IDF Widows and Orphans Organization chairwoman Nava Shoham expressed reserved support on Sunay in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's intention to release 104 Palestinian prisoners as a gesture to the Palestinians ahead of the resumption of peace talks.

"If the prime minister, that holds the security of Israel his top priority, decided that we need to release prisoners at this time, we must bite our lips to connect to our pain, and allow him to lead the country according to its national interests," she said in a statement.

Shoham added that while this is not the first time Israel releases Palestinian prisoners, she hopes this gesture will not cost in more lives in the future.
