Speaking at a rally in Gaza, Albatsh said Israel has proven that it will release Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the safety of its civilians, and that Palestinians should take advantage of that.

“Our war against the enemy is raging,” said Albatsh, Ma’ariv reported. “We must find the ways and means to release our prisoners, we must devise a clear plan to free them.”
