Oved Yehezkel: 'Chance of freeing Schalit in coming days not high'
By JPOST.COM STAFF
"The chances of securing the release of captured soldier Gilad Schalit in the next two or three days are not high," Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Cabinet Secretary, Oved Yehezkel, surmised on Sunday morning.
Speaking to Army radio, Yehezkel said that the matter had been delayed as Hamas had not provided Israel with a revised list of prisoners to be released in a potential exchange deal.
Senior negotiator Ofer Dekel, meanwhile, left for Cairo Sunday morning to continue indirect negotiations on the matter.
