A senior Hamas official said Tuesday that the organization and Israel would be carrying out a prisoner swap in the near future.
Muhammad Attoun, a Palestinian Parliament member who was previously exiled from Jerusalem, told the Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency, "We promise there will be good news very soon. The occupation will accede to our demands, whether it wants to or not. Our prisoners will be victorious at the end of the day.""I can confirm that there will be a deal soon to free our prisoners," Attoun claimed.
