Israeli Court Releases Palestinian Terrorist, Citing Earlier Pardon

Jamal Haj Tirawi was arrested in Nablus in 2007 for orchestrating a 2002 suicide bombing, despite having been named in a deal to keep him out of prison.

In a blow to a prosecution team from the Israel Defense Forces, a military court of appeals released a Palestinian terrorist from prison on Monday after he served six years for planning a 2002 suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.
