Israel had given Hamas a revised a list of Palestinian prisoners it is willing to release in exchange for a captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, a Palestinian official reportedly told Reuters on Thursday night. The unnamed official was quoted by the news agency as saying that according to the list relayed to the Islamic group via the Egyptian negotiators, "Israel now said they were ready to release three top Hamas leaders who they had previously refused to free." However, the Palestinian official went on to say that there was still " a big gap between what Israel has offered and what Hamas wants."
