Group: Grapel deal includes 50% security prisoners

Almagor, a group that represents victims of terror, said that half of the 25 prisoners to be released in exchange for US-Israeli citizen Ilan Grapel Thursday are, contrary to official claims, security prisoners.
In a statement, Almagor claimed that half the prisoners had provided weapons to terrorists, while the other half were involved in smuggling drugs.
Egyptian media had reported that the three of the prisoners are minors who had been acquitted of illegally crossing into Israel to sell cigarettes, but remained imprisoned after prosecutors appealed the ruling.
Almagor called on Israeli citizens to avoid traveling in Muslim countries, to avoid the possibility of being kidnapped or arrested for political purposes.
