An elderly man looks at pictures of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails during a protest in east Jerusalem on April 15, 2010 to demand their release ahead of Prisoner Day later this week. The Islamist Hamas movement which controls Gaza said on April 13 that it would insist on a high price in any prisoner exchange for captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit who was captured in a deadly cross-border raid from Gaza in June 2006. Ezzat al-Risheq, a member of the movement’s politburo in exile, said in a statement that some 8,200 Palestinian prisoners remain in Israeli jails, 30 of them women and 400 of them children.
