Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel has accepted a deal brokered by German mediators for a prisoner exchange for captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit.

Netanyahu said that Israel had not yet received a response from Hamas on the deal.

"This situation is difficult and complicated for Israel," he said, "but we agreed to accept it in the interest of bringing Gilad home."
