Jerusalem24 – An Israeli report said, Tuesday evening, that there has been noticeable and tangible progress in the communications that are taking place regarding a prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas.
Shimon Aran, the correspondent of the Israeli Radio station Kan and the Israeli Arabic-speaking Makan channel, quoted in a tweet, a reliable source that he did not specify, as saying that there is significant and tangible progress in the ongoing contacts for the return of the Israeli prisoners and missing persons held by Hamas.
Aran did not provide more details about this development, which appears to have an Israeli source and not a Palestinian one, or it may be from an Egyptian or another party, especially since the reporter focuses on diplomatic affairs.
Recent Israeli reports indicated the possibility of reaching a preliminary agreement on a prisoner exchange deal, but Hamas repeatedly denies these reports.
This new report may be linked to a noticeable improvement in the work of the crossings in Gaza, and it comes in light of a meeting the cabinet held Tuesday evening for reasons that were not previously announced.
