Hamas: We Are Ready For Negotiations On Prisoner Swap


Khalil al-Hayya, a member of the Hamas political bureau and a senior member of the movement’s leadership in the Gaza Strip, said that Hamas was ready to discuss any initiative aimed at lifting the “siege” and starting negotiations on a prisoner swap.

Al-Hayya said that if Israel were willing to negotiate through a mediator, Hamas would put all the issues on the negotiating table.
