Noam Schalit called the announcement by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that he intends to take privileges from Hamas prisoners in Israel in order to put pressure on the group to release captive soldier Gilad Schalit.

Gilad Schalit's father Noam said of Netanyahu's announcement of sanctions on Palestinian prisoners on the eve of the fifth anniversary of his son's kidnapping, "Five years after he was kidnapped, he starts to introduce these measures."

"It's pathetic," he said. "It's too little, too late." Hamas, he added, "wont' agree to a deal until the government of Israel puts real pressure on them."
