Former Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Aharon Zeevi Farkash said on Saturday that  "If Hamas will take [captive IDF soldier Gilad] Schalit out of the Gaza Strip, even though they have no interest to do so, Israel would have more of a chance of releasing him."

Israel can not say where Gilad is, Farkash said during an event in Beersheba. "It's sad, but that's a fact. I'm sure they are doing everything to get him back."
