Noam Schalit: Israel won't sign cease fire without ensuring Gilad's release

Noam Schalit, father of captured IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Schalit, said Monday that he does not believe that Israel will reach a cease-fire agreement with Hamas that does not include the release of his son. Schalit, who was speaking to Israel Radio, said he was satisfied with the fact that Israeli officials were expressing a similar sentiment. Earlier, MK Tzahi Hanegbi, the head of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that Israel should not pass up the opportunity to include Schalit in the agreement with Hamas.
