Labor leader MK Shelly Yacimovich said Tuesday night that no price was too great for releasing Gilad Schalit from captivity, despite the dangers presented by the release of 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.

"This is about Israeli solidarity," Yacimovich said, adding that Israel is fully responsible for making sure that all soldiers serving in the IDF return home safely.

"It is the basis of Israeli security," Yacimovich said.
