PA official: Schalit deal not a victory for Hamas

The prisoner exchange for kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit is not a victory for Hamas, but rather one for the entire Palestinian nation, a Palestinian Authority official told Channel 2 news outside the Ofer Prison near Ramallah.
The Palestinian official had joined a group of family members and supporters of prisoners that were set to be released into the West Bank.
The official added that the "occupation paid a heavy price" in the deal to free Schalit.
