Noam Schalit urged Hamas leader Khaled Mashal to finalize a deal with Israel by which 1,000 Palestinian prisoners would be released in exchange for his son, who has been held captive in Gaza for the last four years on Thursday.

In a letter which he sent to Mashal in Damascus, Schalit wrote, "show leadership and approve without delay the German mediated deal which sits on your desk." Schalit wrote the letter in advance of Palestinian Prisoner day this Saturday. Such a deal is in the best interest of the Palestinians prisoners and their families, said Schalit.

He also reminded Mashal that his group was holding Schalit in violation of international law.
