Former Egyptian ambassador to Israel Muhammad Bassiuni said that an agreement to release captive soldier Gilad Schalit could be reached within hours, Egyptian paper Al Mesryoon reported on Thursday.

Bassiuni said that the time is right for a deal, but there is a chance Israel will not sign it, as it calls for the release of 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.
