"The cynical manipulation of the Schalit family's feelings by Hamas leadership just two days after Israel allowed a girl to be flown out of Gaza for a life-saving operation, reflects more than anything upon the organization's character," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spokesman, Nir Hefetz said Sunday.

The spokesman was speaking in response to an animated 3D video depicting Gilad Schalit's return in a coffin which was released by Hamas's military arm earlier in the day.

The "base action" by Hamas was the organization's tactic to avoid making a decision on a deal to free the captured soldier, and responding to "the offer of a humanitarian deal worked out with both sides that the German mediator placed before them under Egyptian auspices two months back," Hefetz said.
