"Israel is conducting negotiations to secure the release of the captured IDF soldiers in an amateurish way," senior foreign diplomats said Tuesday. One of the diplomats told Channel Two that when he and other members of a delegation met with Syrian-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, he asked them on whose behalf they were speaking. When they replied that they represented the Israelis, Mashaal remarked that everyone who had come to speak to him had said the same thing. "Negotiations should not be conducted in this way, through multiple channels," said the diplomat.
