Lowering expectations of an imminent release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that no deal had been made, and that he did not know when such an agreement might be reached. "There is no conclusion, no decision, and no deal," he said. In statements made at Israel's National Police headquarters, Netanyahu said that "if and when a deal becomes apparent, [we won't make any backroom deal]. The decision will be brought to the government for a decision." The prime minister went on to say that the issue of Schalit's release would be open to the Israeli public and its ministers to debate.
