Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is set to hold the first discussion Tuesday evening on the list of Palestinian prisoners Hamas wants released in return for freeing kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Schalit. Ofer Dekel, head of the Israeli negotiating team, will present the list of 450 prisoners, submitted by Egyptian mediators, to the prime minister and the cabinet. Jerusalem officials said that Israel might refuse to release some of the prisoners on the list. The list represents roughly a third of the prisoners the Palestinians want freed as part of a prisoner swap deal.
