Galant Cast Lead increa

Operation Cast Lead increased the chances of securing the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant said Wednesday night. "We'll make every effort to fulfill our supreme commitment to bring back Schalit, and, in my opinion, the circumstances created following the operation in the South increased the chances of that happening," said Galant at a swearing-in ceremony for Givati Brigade soldiers.
