A Hamas leader reportedly met with Israeli officials this week in a secret meeting in Netanya, reported the London-based Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat.

According to the report, Palestinian sources said the meeting took place Tuesday, where Hamas member and former treasurer for the Ismail Haniyeh government, Omar Abed Al-Razak arrived in an Israeli vehicle coming from Nablus.

The Palestinian sources did not give reasons for the meeting, but the officials apparently discussed the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, who has been kept captive by Hamas for over four years, or the recent rocket attacks in Eilat, Ashkelon and and the Negev.
