Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office said that actions to return Gilad Schalit to his family are constantly taking place, in a statement Monday evening. However, the prime minister said that he could not cross certain "red lines" in order to release the captive soldier.

The statement followed comments earlier in the day by Noam Schalit, the captive soldier's father, accusing Netanyahu's government of abandoning his son.

Netanyahu said, "I stand firmly in that dangerous terrorists will not be released to places in the West Bank, from where they could carry out attacks inside Israeli territory."
