Many of the Palestinian prisoners who were included on the list to be possibly released as part of the hostage deal committed violent crimes, including attempted murder, and 74 prisoners on the list are residents of East Jerusalem.
All released prisoners will be returned to their homes. In one case, a female terrorist who attempted to murder her neighbor in the Shimon HaTzaddik neighborhood of Jerusalem could be returned to her home next to her victim!
In another case, security officials noted that there is information about a terrorist on the list from Yehudah and Shomron who attempted to murder an Israeli by stabbing him over 20 times in the Gilo neighborhood of Jerusalem only four months ago – that he will commit another terror attack if he is released!
It should be noted that Israelis have 24 hours from the time the hostage deal was approved [early Wednesday morning], to appeal to the Supreme Court against the deal or any specific prisoners on the list.
Seventeen prisoners on the list were convicted of attempted murder. Many belong to terror groups such as Hamas or Islamic Jihad and were convicted of crimes such as causing severe bodily harm, arson, possession of illegal weapons, and endangering state security.
The list of the 150 released prisoners just completely debunked the lie that Israel just arresting innocent Palestinian women and children who “just threw stones”

Army Radio journalist Doron Kadosh examined the list and found a number of prisoners who inflicted grave injuries on Israelis in attempts to murder them. Some of the prisoners and their crimes are listed below – not in any particular order:
Muhammad Abu Katish, 17, who attempted to murder a yeshivah bochur [partially paralyzing him for life] and was only recently sentenced to 15 years in prison. Abu Katish specifically sought out a Chareidi victim. He served only one year of the 15 years he was sentenced.
Bassel Abidiya – a 17-year-old terrorist from East Jerusalem who stabbed and wounded two civilians seriously and lightly at Sha’ar Yafo in Jerusalem exactly one month before October 7th.
Abrahaim Temer carried out a shooting attack in April of this year near the kever of Shimon HaTzaddik in Jerusalem and wounded two Breslover chassidim moderately and lightly.
Fatma Amarna, 44, attempted to murder a Border Police officer a number of months ago in the Old City of Jerusalem. The officer was saved by his protective vest.
Ahmed Najama – a 16-year-old terrorist from Jenin who carried out a stabbing attack in Bnei Brak during Operation Bayit Vegan.
Malek Solmein, a resident of East Jerusalem who attempted to murder Border Police officers at Sha’ar Shechem in 2016. She was 16 at the time.
Meison Musa – who stabbed and seriously injured a female IDF soldier next to Kever Rochel.
Asraa Jabes, 38, who attempted murder by exploding a gas balloon in her car near Ma’ale Adumim in 2015. Her face was disfigured as a result of the explosion and she went to court to request a nose job at the expense of the State. Her request was denied.
In addition, a terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack less than two months ago at Sha’ar Yafo, seriously wounding an Israeli man, is on the list.
