Report: Hamas Official Forecasts Progress on Shalit

Deputy Chief Moussa Abu-Marzouk of the Hamas terror organization's politburo said, Tuesday evening, that he foresees positive movement in contacts between Israel and Hamas on the release of abducted soldier Gilad Shalit, according to Al-Hayat.

The London-based Arabic daily said Abu-Marzouk's comments follow meetings in Cairo, this week, with Gaza terror chief Ahmed Al-Jabri. Similar forecasts, in the past, have proven unfounded.
