Hamas is no longer responsible for the safety of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, one of the group's leaders was quoted as saying Sunday. Mousa Abu Marzouk, the deputy chairman of Hamas's political bureau, told Al-Hayat that he doesn't know whether or not Schalit had been wounded during the IDF's Gaza operation "Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't," he told the London-based newspaper. "This issue is no longer of interest to us and we are no longer responsible for his safety."
