The Israeli government  will hold a special session late Monday to re-examine plans to release a second group of veteran Palestinian prisoners in custody before the Oslo Accord of 1994. Ma'an has learned that senior officials decided to re-examine the decision following calls from the right in Israel to cancel the release of pre-Oslo prisoners after two Israeli soldiers were killed in the occupied West Bank. The right-wing Israelis, who opposed the decision from the beginning, maintain that “punitive” procedures should be taken against the Palestinians after the killing of two Israeli soldiers in separate incidents . However, the Israeli army’s chief of staff Benny Gants has said that the killing of Israeli soldiers would not affect the government's commitment to release veteran prisoners, a source told Ma'an. Seven Israeli ministers have voiced support for the right-wing Jewish Home party chief Naftali Bennet in his demand to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reconsider the decision to release.
