Former deputy Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) chief and the government's representative on the issue of captured IDF soldiers, Ofer Dekel, visited Cairo last week and gave the Egyptians a list of prisoners Israel was willing to release in exchange for captured IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Schalit, Al-Hayat quoted an Egyptian source as saying on Monday morning. However, according to the source, Hamas opposed the offer because there were no Popular Resistance Committees members on list, arguing that the PRC had also participated in Schalit's capture. Israel Radio reported that Dekel urged Egypt to send its security delegation back to Gaza or that the negotiations to secure Schlait's release be conducted on Egyptian soil.
