The London-based Al-Hayat newspaper reported on Tuesday that Israel and the Palestinians were close to an agreement over kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit. Reportedly, the soldier would be returned to Israel, via Egyptian or French mediators, in exchange for Palestinian prisoners. Additionally, in exchange for the IDF halting its operations in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian organizations would apparently agree to stop rocket attacks on Israel.
