Hamas leader in exile Khaled Mashaal said Monday afternoon at a press conference in Damascus that Hamas would not release kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit unless Israel releases Palestinian security prisoners, Israel Radio reported. Mashaal's stance contradicted earlier Palestinian and Egyptian reports that the Hamas leadership would release Shalit without an immediate agreement by Israel to free prisoners.
