Palestinians Thank Israel for Releasing Jailed Terrorists by Hurling Rocks at Prison Buses (Video)
The Palestinians thanked Israel tonight for releasing jailed terrorists by chucking rocks at the prison buses.
Israeli police responded with tear gas and stun guns.
Israel has freed 26 long-held Palestinian prisoners as a gesture, hours before peace talks resume.
The prisoners were loaded onto buses late Tuesday and brought home to the West Bank and Gaza. Jubilant relatives and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas hailed them as heroes.
Palestinian protesters threw rocks at the border prison where the inmates were held. Israeli police responded with stun grenades and tear gas. There is no word on injuries.
Many of the Palestinians were jailed in the 1980s and 90s for killing Israelis and suspected Palestinian collaborators.
Families of some of the victims failed to convince the Israeli Supreme Court to stop the release. They say freeing them is a reward for terrorism.
