Palestinian prisoners rejected a request by the Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) to sign an agreement not to return to armed resistance as part of the deal to release Gilad Schalit, Egyptian daily Al Youm As Sabaa
quoted a source from the Hamas delegation to Cairo as saying on Tuesday.
According to the report, the Shin Bet had put pressure on the Palestinian inmates to sign the pledge, but prisoners responded that this was not a part of the deal. The source also told Al Youm As Sabaa
that Schalit had not been transferred to Cairo, but rather was held near the Israeli border with Sinai.
