The non-governmental organization which advocates on behalf of bereaved kin who lost loved ones in terrorist attacks demanded on Thursday that the ombudsman and the attorney general order the government to reconsider the release of Palestinian terrorists just a week before 30 more are due to be freed.

The Israeli government approved the release of over 100 Palestinians as a gesture to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas just prior to the re-launch of peace negotiations.

According to Israel Radio, the organization, Almagor, is arguing that the recent spike in terrorist incidents in the West Bank mandates a reconsideration of the controversial decision to release the Palestinian convicts.
