Family of released terrorist prisoner calls for release of remaining prisoners through violence and other means

In October 2011, the Israeli government agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prison in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.
"Family of prisoner Wafa Al-Bis: Sense of joy, anticipation and hope for the release of all prisoners"
"It is known that prisoner Wafa Al-ABis was born July 8, 1984 and arrested on Monday, June 20, 2005, at 7am while attempting to carry out a Martyrdom operation (i.e., suicide attack) at the Beit Hanoun crossing…
The family of prisoner Al-Bis feels joy, but at the same time senses the suffering of the families of the prisoners who continue to serve their sentences, in the midst of a hunger strike and the actions of the occupation. For this reason the family, like the other families, seeks the release of all the prisoners, whether through resistance (i.e., violence) or through other means, in order that everyone will feel true joy."

Note: Wafa Al-Bis was caught attempting to carry out a suicide attack at an Israeli check-point in June 2005 when she was on her way to medical treatment at a hospital in Israel.
Thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israel are serving sentences on charges of murder and terror offenses.
