Opposition leader Tzipi Livni said overnight Sunday, "I respect the government's decision to bring about the release of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit."

Livni sent her blessings to the Schalit family and "all of Israel which sees Gilad as a family member."

The Opposition leader expressed solidarity with the families of terror victims "who are also going through difficult times."

Livni stated that the release of terrorists from Israeli jails was a move which would have "complicated security consequences," adding that a discussion of future such events should be discussed following Schalit's return.
