The Security Cabinet has instructed Minister of Public Security Yitzchak Aharonovich to cancel any and all privileges given to Hamas terrorists imprisoned in Israel. The cabinet is well aware that despite its frustration as efforts continue to locate and rescue the captive yeshiva students from Hamas captivity, the Israel Prison Authority is bound by international law and these heinous individuals must still receive a minimum level of services.
While the prisoners will continue receiving three meals daily, medical care, meetings with an attorney, newspapers and books, and daily fresh air time in a yard, some of their privileges are likely to be revoked. This may include removal of the radio and TV in their cells, canteen rights, and family visits once every two weeks.
Names for Tehillim:

3. Eyal ben Iris Tesurah
