There is no deal with Hamas to free captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit at the moment, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Likud ministers on Sunday morning. "At this point, there's no deal, and it's not clear whether or not there will be a deal," he said. "If it comes to a vote, I'll bring it to the government, but we're not there yet, and I don't know if we ever will be." The prime minister added that though Israel wants to bring captives back home, "We need to minimize risk to civilians."
