Egypt is making vigorous moves to advance a prisoner exchange deal that would see captive soldier Gilad Schalit released, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said on Thursday.

"Schalit's release depends on the Israeli position," Mashaal said. "The ball is now in [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu's court," saying Netanyahu is responsible for the lack of progress in the deal.
