Shas Chairman Eli Yishai said that the cabinet decision made Tuesday night to approve a prisoner exchange to free captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit was "painful and difficult".

He added that it "had to be done" and that "it was preferable to do it today."

Twenty-six ministers voted for the deal, and three against.
