Haniyeh urges Palestinians to support Schalit exchange deal

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Saturday encouraged Palestinians to support an agreement to release Palestinian prisoners in Israel in exchange for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit, Ma'an News Agency reported.
Speaking at a session of the Hamas parliamentary bloc in commemoration of "Prisoner's Day," Haniyeh stated that the resistance would not disappoint Palestinians and the prisoners' families.
He added that the Hamas government supported the demands of Schalit's captors, which, if met, would be a new victory for Palestinians, Ma'an reported.
