Hamas was expected to released the list of names of the prisoners to be released in a prisoner-swap deal with Israel in exchange for Gilad Schalit on Tuesday night.
Despite reports that Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti was among those on the list, Israeli officials said that this was not the case.
Among other symbols who apparently were not on the list were Abdullah Barghouti, the senior Hamas engineer in Gaza responsible for dozens of murders, Ibrahim Hamed, the head of Hamas' military wing in the West Bank, and Ahmed Sa'adat head of the Popular Front who was responsible for the assassination of Rehavam Ze'evi.
