PFLP: Israelis must decide on prisoner release

Yasser Abed Rabo, a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine official, said Sunday night that there were still difficulties on Israel's behalf regarding Palestinian prisoners that Israel is to release in exchange for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, Israel Radio reported. He hoped that the two sides would be able to overcome these difficulties. Abed Rabo told reporters in a Ramallah press conference that Hamas's policy towards the issue has changed and that the group was now closer that ever to a closing a deal.
