Demonstrators in Gaza congregated at the house of top Hamas official Dr. Mahmoud A-Zahar Sunday, calling on him not to give in to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's deal to free Schalit.

Zahar obliged them, saying "we promise to continue this way even if our blood is shed, in order to release the prisoners from jail. We will continue on their course until the prisoners are released."

Netanyahu offered to free 1,000 Hamas prisoners from Israeli jails in exchange for kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, but will not free the most dangerous terrorists, and would not allow released prisoners back to the West Bank. The demonstrators in Gaza did not agree with these terms.
