Hamas has not rejected the Israeli counter-offer on a prisoner exchange deal to free captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, but will continue negotiations, Al-Jazeera quoted senior Hamas leader Izzat Rishek as saying Wednesday. Rishek denied a Tuesday report by the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya network that claimed that the movement's leadership has rejected the latest offer presented by a German mediator. Although he refused to give details on the Israeli proposal, Rishek said, "Hamas will continue with contacts via the German mediator, in the hope that we can come to a deal for the release of Palestinian prisoners from all factions."
