    In August 2008, the Israeli Cabinet has approved the release of almost 200 Palestinian security prisoners. Israel freed another 400 Palestinian prisoners and five other prisoners in return for Elhanan Tannenbaum, who was held captive by Hizbullah, and for the bodies of three soldiers kidnapped on Mount Dov. According to an informal estimate by Israeli security bodies, about 50 percent of the terrorists freed returned to the path of terror. In the terror acts committed by these freed terrorists, hundreds of Israelis were murdered, and thousands were wounded. An investigation by the Almagor Terror Victims Association in Israel revealed that at least 30 of the terrorist attacks perpetrated since 2000 were committed by terrorists freed in deals with terror organizations. Many were freed in the framework of goodwill gestures because they were defined by Israel as “without blood on their hands.” The bloody swath cut by these terrorists claimed the life of 177 persons, with many others wounded and made invalids.
