Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on Friday threatened to capture more Israeli soldiers in order to win the release of all Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons. In a speech in Damascus, Syria, Mashaal congratulated the Palestinian people on Israel's release of 19 female prisoners in return for a video of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. Mashaal promised to work for the release of thousands of Palestinians held by Israel. Those who were able to capture Schalit and hold him safely for more than three years are capable of capturing "Schalit and Schalit and Schalit until there is not even one prisoner in the enemy's jails," Mashaal said.
