Egyptian intelligence services have formulated a new draft to secure the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, which Hamas views as acceptable, Al Jazeera reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Egyptian officials will present the new draft to a newly appointed negotiator who is scheduled to visit the country in the following days.

Following the signing of the national unity agreement by Hamas and Fatah, Egypt reportedly increased its role in negotiating a prisoner exchange.
