Friday, 10 July 2020 | Israel has passed Hamas a new outline for a prisoner swap, Palestinian sources familiar with the issue confirmed to Ynet on Thursday.
The outline was passed to the terror group via a third-party mediator, the sources said.
According to Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds, the outline does not meet the conditions previously demanded by Hamas that would lead to the start of negotiations on the issue.
Hamas, which rules Gaza, is holding the bodies of two IDF [Israel Defense Forces] soldiers who fell in the 2014 war and two captive Israelis who entered the coastal enclave of their own volition.
Hamas said last week that the ball was in Israel’s court regarding a prisoner swap after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated his readiness to consider the issue.
“The ball is in the Israeli government’s court and it is up to them to take steps.”
