Syria to Receive Terrorists Released in Shalit Deal

Syria, along with Qatar and Turkey, will receive some of the terrorist prisoners who will be freed as part of the Gilad Shalit deal, the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper is reporting.

Hamas official Musa Abu Marzouk confirmed in an interview with the newspaper that Hamas reached an understanding with three countries to receive the deported prisoners. Abu Marzouk expressed regret at Hamas’ failure to include all the female prisoners in the agreement, but stressed that this issue will not bring about the cancellation of the deal.
