Almagor Terror Victims' Association said on Thursday that the price of captive soldier Gilad Schalit's release should not be paid in blood.

In response to former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi saying Israel will have to "pay a reasonable price" if the military cannot free Schalit, Almagor released a statement saying: "Any reasonable price that Ashkenazi is willing to pay for Schalit should be one that others do not pay with their lives."
