As Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yuval Diskin and the prime minister's special envoy for prisoner exchanges, Ofer Dekel, were set to hold what are being called "make-or-break talks" in Cairo to secure the release of Gilad Schlait, Welfare Minister Isaac Herzog stressed that "these hours are fateful" for the captured soldier's freedom. "The heart yearns for his return, but the situation is complex and difficult," said Herzog prior to Sunday's cabinet meeting. "The other side doesn't seem to understand that we also have red lines."
