Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh called the prisoner exchange that saw Gilad Schalit and nearly 500 prisoners on Tuesday "a page of light in the Palestinian history," speaking at a press conference Tuesday evening.

"We need to make more pages like this one," he said, alluding to further kidnappings that could be leveraged for more Palestinian prisoners.
