There has been progress in negotiations for the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, Egyptian Ambassador to Israel Yasser Reda said on Tuesday, expressing optimism about his imminent release. "If the negotiations are conducted discreetly, he will soon be home with his family, God willing" said the ambassador. Reda's comments were made at a dedication ceremony of a new plaza in the Ramat Begin neighborhood of Haifa named in honor of slain Egyptian leader Anwar Sadat.
