Families of terror victims protest government policy on Hamas extortion
Families of KIA soldier Adar Goldin, the Bereaved Families Forum, and the Israeli Victory Organization have placed an inflatable chicken outside the Knesset in Jerusalem, alluding to the government’s fear to take action against Hamas.
“The chicken symbolizes the Israeli government that speaks like Hamas. You can also release prisoners without releasing terrorists or endangering soldiers. Hamas is a terror organization and they’re running circles around the State of Israel,” Hadar Goldin’s father said.
The bodies of IDF soldiers, Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, who were killed in 2014 during Protective Edge operation, are being held by Hamas in Gaza as negotiation card to release more Muslim terrorists from Israeli prisons.
“Asks the government to prevent terror. Deterrence is the solution to prevent terror. Unfortunately, we feel the heavy price of terror and expect the government to make every effort to subdue it,” Herzl, father of Shir Hajaj, said.
