spokesman Ayman Te said on Thursday that Hamas believes that the German
mediator heading up negotiaons for the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad
Schalit will resign his post in the near future.
The spokesman blamed Israeli stubbornness in the face of Hamas
demands for the predicted resignation.
A member of
the Hamas’s poltical wing, Itzat a-Reshik added that Israel’s postions are
putting the mediator in an untenable situation, and added that the primary obstacle
standing in the way of a deal is the release of a number of Hamas prisoners that
Israel is refusing to set free.
