A Palestinian prisoner released by Israel on Sunday as part of a swap for a captive soldier said the influential rabbi he was jailed for plotting to assassinate deserves to die.

Salah Hamouri, 26, was one of 550 prisoners freed on Sunday to complete a deal in which Israel released 1,027 prisoners for soldier Gilad Schalit, who was held captive in the Gaza Strip for over five years.

Many of the 450 prisoners freed on Oct. 18 under the Egyptian-brokered swap for the soldier had been serving life sentences for deadly attacks.

None of those freed in the second stage, on Sunday, had been convicted of perpetrating any killings, though some such as Hamouri were involved in plotting violence, or involvement in non-lethal attacks.
