'We'll abduct more soldiers if Schalit deal demands aren't answered'

Hamas will abduct more IDF soldiers if Israel does not answer its demands for freeing Gilad Schalit, a Hamas official threatened in an interview published Saturday. "Abducting soldiers is not a purpose in and of itself and is not a hobby," Osama al-Zeini, the Hamas official in charge of the "Schalit file," told Palestine - a newspaper affiliated with Hamas. "The issue is the issue of prisoners. If the Schalit deal does not meet its objectives and the enemy will not answer our demands, there is no doubt that more pressure must be exerted on the enemy so that it complies. [Our] goal is to free the prisoners and we insist on it," he said.
