Ben-Eliezer doesn't rule out releasing Barghouti

National Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said Friday in an interview with Army Radio that he did not rule out the possibility of releasing jailed Tanzim leader Marwan Barghouti. Ben-Eliezer said that an early release for the extremely popular leader would be an overture aimed at bolstering PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's newly reinstated Fatah-led government.
