Israel Preparing for Phase 2 of Shalit Deal


Israel is preparing for the release of 550 more security prisoners under the second phase of the deal which released soldier Gilad Shalit from Hamas captivity last week. The second phase is to be completed within two months.

The Shabak Israel Security Agency is preparing a list of the prisoners to be included in the release. It has not yet been decided if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will ask the cabinet to approve the list.
