Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Ismail Haniyeh denied reports Monday of an imminent swap deal involving kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit and 1,400 Palestinian prisoners. Qatar-based A-Sha'ark newspaper had reported than an exchange would be completed within the next 48 hours. Ahmad Yousef, spokesman for the Hamas's political wing, said that the question of Shalit's release was not a matter of time but depended on Israel's willingness to free Palestinian prisoners.
