Osama Mazini, who is in charge of the 'Schalit portfolio' on behalf of Hamas, said there had been certain progress in the negotiations over a prisoner exchange deal with Israel, but that the "movement had not been sufficient," Israel Radio reported on Sunday. Mazini reportedly added that recent media reports on the finalization of the deal that would bring about the release of captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit and some 450 Palestinian prisoners "are not true" and refrained from disclosing details "in order not to hurt our prisoners."
