Hamas leader in Damascus Khaled Mashaal on Sunday blamed Israel for a delay in indirect negotiations to exchange hundreds of Palestinian prisoners for captured IDF soldier Sgt. Gilad Schalit. Speaking in Saudi Arabia following a meeting with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, Mashaal stated that the Islamist organization was "still following the negotiations through the German mediator." Mashaal then accused Israel of hindering progress in the talks. "The Israeli position keeps changing," he said. "They take one step forward and two back."
