Hamas denied Wednesday that it had received a list with the names of Palestinians who are scheduled to be released as part of the second phase of the prisoner swap agreement with Israel.

The denial came in response to the publication of a list including the names of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners. The list was published by a number of Palestinian media outlets.

Saleh Arouri, a Hamas official who is in charge of following up on the issue of the Palestinian prisoners, said that the published list was not official or final.

He said that neither Hamas not Egypt, which helped broker the prisoner agreement, have received word from Israel about the intention to release the inmates whose names appeared in the list.
