Palestinian protesters supporting prisoners in Israeli jails were attacked by Israeli forces outside Ofer Prison near the city of Ramallah on October 11, 2011.
Hamas says the Palestinian resistance movement has reached an agreement for a prisoner exchange with the Israeli regime.


According to a Hamas source who spoke on condition of anonymity on Tuesday, the deal would be implemented “within days,” AFP reported.

“A deal between Hamas and Israel has been reached with full Egyptian mediation on the implementation of a prisoner exchange within a week,” the source said.

The source added that Hamas Political Bureau Chief Khaled Meshaal was expected to deliver “an important address,” which was expected to be related to the long-awaited deal.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened an emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss what his office described as “a serious proposal” for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Shalit was captured in June 2006 by Palestinian fighters after he infiltrated into the Gaza Strip. Hamas requested the release of 1,400 Palestinians held without charge in Israeli prisons in exchange for the Israeli soldier.

Several rounds of talks over a prisoner exchange deal have been unsuccessful despite the efforts of mediators including Egypt and Germany to help the sides agree a release accord.

Germany's previous efforts to finalize the deal fell through in 2010 when Israel refused to release dozens of the detainees on the Hamas list.

The agreement on Tuesday came as Israeli troops attacked Palestinian demonstrators who had gathered outside Ofer Prison and went on hunger strike in the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Protesters expressed anger about the conditions under which Palestinians are held at Ofer Prison and other Israeli detention facilities.

According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, about 6,000 Palestinian detainees are currently held in Israeli prisons.
