PLO releases 39 Islamic Jihad terrorists from jail
The Palestinian Authority released 39 Islamic Jihad terrorists from a Jericho prison on Thursday.It wouldn't surprise me if even they'd been released, along with the other murderers whom they freed.
Palestinian sources said that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and PA Foreign Minister Nasser al-Kidwa ordered their release.
Some 20 Aksa Martyr's Brigades and PFLP terrorists remain in the prison, including those responsible for the murder of former Israeli Cabinet Minister Rehavam Zeevi.
Not only that, but, as IRIS notes, for a prison that was said to be under US/UK surveillance (a reporter who visited found none present), it was virtually abandoned, to the point of where even a "revolving door" did not exist.
And it wouldn't be surprising if the PLO released them so that they could join up with them in their return to full-time terror. As Haaretz reports, (also via IRIS Blog) Fatah's been resuming their terror activities. It's quite possible that the Islamic Jihad terrorists could join them, and probably already have.
