Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo, head of the IDF's Operations Directorate, said that if IDF soldier Gilad Schalit could be released from Hamas captivity via a military operation, the army would have already carried out the operation. In an interview with Israel Radio, which will be broadcast on Saturday morning, Russo reportedly said that Israel was making the utmost efforts to bring about Schalit's release, but "not at any price, and not everything is possible."
