Ashkenazi: Schalit is a consideration in our decision over Gaza op

Captive soldier Gilad Schalit is one of our considerations in deciding over military action in the Gaza Strip, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen Gabi Ashkenazi told Army Radio on Monday morning. "I feel we haven't completed the mission. We sent him and his friends… and until we get him back home we haven't completed the mission. We work on this issue every day, and are making all efforts to bring Gilad home," Ashkenazi said. Schalit has been held captive by Hamas for 911 days.
