The uncle of kidnapped IDF solder Gilad Schalit, Bezalel Raz, addressed the resignation of mediator Haggai Hadas, saying that a person who sees the light at the end of the tunnel, would not have requested to finish his term, according to Army Radio.

"If a person who has worked so hard would have had any hope to look forward to, he would not have asked to leave his position," Raz said. "The government did not give him room to work with."

In an interview on Army Radio, Raz commented on pictures which showed the Schalit family spending their Pessah Seder sitting on the sidewalk in front of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's residence in Jerusalem.
