The Israeli army freed some 100 Palestinian prisoners Tuesday as part of conciliatory gestures toward the Palestinians. The prisoners released Tuesday included the longest held detainee, Ahmed Jubarah, also known as Abu Sukar, who spent 28 years in jail for his role in a 1975 refrigerator bombing in downtown Jerusalem that killed 13 people and wounded 70 others. Also released was a PLO executive committee member, Taiser Khaled.
