Hamas on Tuesday hinted that it is mulling whether to give a sign of life from captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, reported Channel 10 news.
The report comes after it was reported Monday that Schalit's family increased pressure on the Red Cross to obtain a sign of life from Gilad.Hama's hints were published in the group's official newspaper, al-Risala. According to the Channel 10 report, the group has realized that releasing a sign of life would drive public discourse in Israel. Publicizing it in Hamas's newspaper, according to Channel 10, is intended to pressure the Schalit family to increase demands on the Israeli government.
However, Hamas would most likely require something in return for a sign of life from the kidnapped soldier, reported Channel 10.
