Gilad Schalit will be handed over to Egyptian hands in the coming days ahead of a prisoner exchange with Israel, Voice of Palestine reported Saturday morning. The radio report cited Egyptian sources who noted that troops on the Rafah border crossing with Gaza had been reinforced and instructed to increased their alertness over the coming days. "Passage of Hamas officials in and out of Egypt is commonplace, but this if the first time that there is such a security presence in the area," the sources said. "This indicates that something out of the ordinary is taking place."
