Local sources reported that the spokesperson of the Israeli Government Avy Bazner accuses Hamas for delaying prisoners swap deal with Israel confirming that Israel is working hard to release the Israeli soldier Ghilad Shaleet.

Bazner added that Israel wants Hamas to release Shaleet and stop launching home-made shells from Gaza. He also stated that Israel doesn’t consider Hamas as the official government of Palestine because it is working against the PA.

Bazner assures that the negotiation with Hamas must continue through the Egyptian mediator in order to go forward with the prisoners swap deal and release Shaleet.
