Noam Schalit, father of kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, said Saturday that he is concerned negotiations to free his son may take years.
He said that despite the videotape that Hamas gave Israel on Friday in return for the release of 20 female Palestinian prisoners, there was still no breakthrough in talks.
"We're not on the brink of a deal," he told reporters in Mitzpe Hila, outside the Schalit family home.
