Director of Hamas's international relations Osama Hamdan stated that his Movement can never change its demands for the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, stressing that Israel would find itself in the end forced to comply with these demands.

In a press statement on Friday to Al-Qassam website on the fourth anniversary of Shalit's capture, Hamdan underlined that the success of the Palestinian resistance fighters in sustaining the capture of Shalit for all these years was due to the fact that the meanings of secrecy in their dictionary are not only related to military concepts, but also to their strong faith in God and their devotion to the rules of this work.

"This soldier was neither captured for luxury nor for a mere desire to keep him, but his capture was for the sake of a noble cause," the Hamas official emphasized.

He pointed out that the Israeli security apparatuses are still seeking access to any information leading to Shalit, but if they managed to reach him, they would not hesitate to physically liquidate him along with his captors as they did with other soldiers who fell into captivity during the war on Gaza.

For his part, the popular resistance committees said Saturday that the Palestinian resistance in Gaza achieved a considerable military and security victory when it was able to keep Shalit in a hideout in Gaza over the past four years.

The committees added that Israel's ongoing threats to get Shalit released by force failed at all levels, describing Benjamin Netanyahu's latest remarks about this soldier as a narcotic injection to absorb the Israeli public opinion's anger.

In a related context, a survey conducted by Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper stated that 72 percent of Israelis approve the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners including those who were involved in "killing" incidents in exchange for Shalit.

According to the survey, 74 percent of Israelis are pessimist about getting Shalit released without fulfilling the Palestinian resistance's demands.

For its part, the higher national committee for the support of prisoners strongly denounced the remarks made by deputy head of the Red Cross in occupied Palestine Pierre Dorbes in which he held Hamas responsible for the failure of the swap deal with Israel.

The committee said in a statement on Thursday that Dorbes' remarks reflected his blatant bias in favor of Israel whose premier refused to sign the swap deal after it was in its final stages.

The committee noted that the number of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails was not as mentioned by Dorbes who ignored the prisoners of occupied Jerusalem and the 1948 occupied lands, affirming that there are more than 7,000 female and male Palestinians in Israeli prisons.
