A member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family has offered a $900,000 reward for the capture of an Israeli soldier.

The offer, made Saturday by Prince Khaled bin Talal on a national television channel, comes days after prominent Saudi cleric Sheik Awadh al-Qarani floated a $100,000 offer for capturing an Israeli soldier.

The prince said the captured Israeli soldier would be traded for Arab prisoners held in Israeli jails, according to news service reports.

The offer comes after Israel agreed to release more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the freedom of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
