A month after he went into hiding at the beginning of Operation Cast Lead, senior Hamas operative Khalil al-Hayeh made a first public appearance on Friday, Army Radio reported. During a rally held Friday, al-Hayeh declared Hamas's victory over Israel and called his supporters to continue their "armed struggle" against the Jewish state. According to the radio station, al-Hayeh also said that captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit will not be freed until the Palestinians held in Israeli prisons are released.
