At a rally in Ramallah celebrating the release of hundreds of Arab terrorists, Mahmoud Abbas claimed that Israel agreed to release a many prisoners to him.
He said, " It is not a secret if I say that there is an agreement between us and the Israeli government to release another batch similar to this one after [this prisoner swap] is finished, God willing."
Ha'aretz says that "it was the first mention of such a release."
Abbas went on to praise the prisoners, some of whom are cold blooded multiple murderers of innocent civilians, as "freedom fighters, and Mujahideen for the sake of God and the homeland."
