PM Tells Red Cross: “Freeing Hamas Prisoners Means More Terror’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) President Peter Mauer on Monday of a recent case in which a Hamas prisoner freed on humanitarian grounds soon gloried in his return to terror.

The ICRC, which often advocates on behalf of prisoners in Israel, never once convinced Hamas to allow a representative to visit and check on the health and well-being of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in the entire five-year period during which he was held captive in Gaza, ruled by the terrorist organization.
