Noam Schalit said Tuesday that Israel must be heavy-handed in its approach to preventing future kidnappings, and should use "deterrence and not legislation."
"The terror organizations need to know that kidnappings don't pay off for them," Schalit told a Knesset conference on the price for future kidnappings.
Schalit said that terror organizations seeking to carry out the same kind of kidnapping operation that resulted in the capture of his son, Gilad, in 2006, and his captivity until 2011, will be punished.
"The terror organizations need to know that kidnappings will result in strikes against the organizations and their leaders," Schalit said.
