'Israel can forget Schalit if Hamas seniors die'

Spokesman for the armed wing of Hamas, Abu Obeida, said that Israel could forget about kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit if it targets senior army or political officials in the group, Israel Radio reported Saturday. In an announcement released on the militant group's Web site, Obeida said that the renewal of terrorist attacks against Israel 'was only a matter of time' and that Hamas were planning to kidnap more soldiers.
