Hamas: We'll free the rest of the prisoners at all costs

December 19, 2011 14:54

The military wing of Hamas threatened Sunday evening to kidnap more Israeli soldiers to put more pressure on Israel to release the rest of the Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails.

A statement to this effect came from a Hamas spokesman at a news conference in Gaza following Sunday night's release of 550 prisoners in the second and final phase of the Gilad Schalit deal.

"This achievement will not be the end of the story... We will continue to work for the prisoners at whatever cost," said spokesman for the military wing of Hamas, Abu Ovadia.
