Noam Schalit addressed the prisoner deal to secure his son Gilad Schalit's release overnight Sunday, saying that the release of more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners was indeed a large price to pay for his release.

"We did not set the price," Schalit told reporters. "Two governments and countless officials established the deal. To our chagrin the price is heavy," he added.
