Home Front Security Minister Matan Vilna'i told Israel Radio on Tuesday night, "We are proving, for who knows how many times, that each of our soldiers is a world unto himself, and we will make a supreme effort to bring him home. The deal is a tough one, but it was the best possible to reach in these conditions."

He said the terms thrashed out since secret negotiations got serious about three months ago did not give Hamas everything they asked for.

"We got the maximum we were able. And we are again proving that we will make supreme efforts to bring our soldiers home. It's the case for every family living in Israel," Vilna'i said.
