On the occasion of "Prisoners Day," Hamas together with Islamic Jihad and other terror groups publicly called for more terror attacks against Israel, purportedly in order to help gain the release of the prisoners.
The group of "resistance factions" unanimously declared that that the most effective way to free the prisoners is "resistance by the sword," a euphemism for terror attacks and Shalit-style soldier abductions.
Abu Obaida, a spokesman for Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades, released a statement today calling the prisoner issue an "absolute priority of the resistance. I do not say this as a mere slogan, but we have proved it with our pure blood."
He promised the prisoners and their families that "the walls of the prison will shatter ...with the permission of God, and may that say come soon."
Spokesman Abu Ahmed of Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades also stated that that the issue of prisoners has become a top priority for the terror groups.
He said "The complete liberation of prisoners is what the Palestinian factions seek, and the best way to free our prisoners will be resistance and abducting soldiers."
