Convicted terrorist Samir Kuntar on Wednesday urged Palestinians to capture more Israeli soldiers in order to secure the freedom of all Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli jails, the Ma'an news agency reported.

Kuntar, sentenced to four life sentences in 1980 for participating in a terror attack that killed four Israelis, was freed in 2008 in a swap for the bodies of two Israeli soldiers.

The former PLO member, speaking from Lebanon, stated that the deal to release Gilad Schalit in exchange for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners proves that armed resistance is the only way to liberate Palestinians jailed in Israel.
