 A new law .. Israel closes the door for the early release of Palestinian prisoners

Truth NGO - The Knesset's General Assembly passed a bill to prevent the early release of Palestinian prisoners or to reduce one-third of their sentences, making it a valid law after 27 members voted in favor and only six opposed.

The bill states that "prisoners who have been charged with premeditated murder and assisted murder under the anti-terrorism law will not be given the opportunity to shorten their sentences."

Likud lawmaker Anat Barako said the law forbids shortening prison terms for those she described as terrorists.

"Shortening the duration is a catalyst for rehabilitation, but terrorists express pride in their work and do not feel remorse, and they deserve to be punished for the end," she said.

Israel holds about 6,500 Palestinians, most of them residents of the West Bank, in its jails, according to official Palestinian statistics.
