Sources close to Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu revealed on Sunday that he would break his long-standing policy of not commenting on Schalit's fate after he forms a government, which he intends to do by Thursday's deadline. "When he is prime minister, he will speak about the issue," a senior source close to the Likud leader said. "But right now there is nothing positive that can come in any direction from making any comments," the source added.
