PM: No Stone Unturned on Returning Soldiers and Missing

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Tuesday, that he had no information about the reliability of information claimed by convicts who stand to be released for leading authorities to the whereabouts of the remains of missing soldier Majdi Halabi. During an interview for Independence Day, Netanyahu said, "I am aided by professional sources and I hope we will help end the tragedy of relatives who do not know and are looking everywhere without success."

The prime minister continued, "We turn over every stone and make every effort to return our captives, missing people and prisoners. Not at any price, but if we find this missing person at this price, I would do it. There were prices for Gilad Shalit as well as for Ilan Garfel, and we're trying to return Jonathan Pollard. We are making extraordinary efforts."
