Zionist Israel offers swap deal in exchange for captive soldiers
Israel has proposed a swap deal to get back the bodies of two captive soldiers in return for 20 Palestinian martyrs, the Israeli Yediot Aharonot newspaper reported Thursday.
The newspaper quoted an Israeli security official as stating that indirect talks have been underway with Egypt so as to urge Hamas to release the bodies of the two soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin in return for the bodies of 20 Palestinians killed in last summer’s Israeli offensive.
No decision has yet been finalized as regards the proposal, the same source said.
The newspaper added that Hamas is trying to use the captive soldiers as bargaining chips for the release of more Palestinian detainees.
Observers said the Israeli occupation has done it all to seize scraps of information about the fate of the Israeli captives. Hamas, however, has insisted that no such data shall be propagated if all the recaptured Palestinians detainees are not released.
