Hizbullah won't free troops unless Kuntar released
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Hizbullah reiterated that they would not release the two kidnapped IDF soldiers, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, unless Israel released Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar, Israel Radio reported Friday morning.
In an interview with Nazareth-based Arab newspaper A-Sinara, Hizbullah official Mahmoud al-Khatami said that the purpose of the kidnapping nearly two months ago was to bring about Kuntar's release, and therefore Hizbullah would not relinquish this demand.
