Within two or three days, Hamas will relay its response to Israel's latest offer in negotiations over a deal to secure the release of captured IDF soldier St.-Sgt. Gilad Schalit, a top Gaza official told Al-Jazeera in an interview published Friday. The Arab news network quoted senior Hamas member Izzat al-Risheq as saying that the organization's response would be handed to the German mediator within the coming days. Al-Risheq stated that a delegation of top Hamas officials would hold two days of meetings with the organization's leadership in Damascus in order to discuss Israel's offer.
