The President of the International Committee of the red cross Peter Morer will hold on Wednesday, September 5, a series of meetings in Israel, in Ramallah and in the Gaza strip, to advance negotiations for the release of terrorist held by Hamas the Israelis and the Israeli military.
In particular, Morer will meet with the new leader of Hamas in Gaza, John Sinoira.
Earlier, one of the leaders of the political wing of Hamas, Sheikh Hassan Yusuf said that if Morer came to ask to free the Israelites, his visit does not make sense. He also said that the ICRC representatives would not allow the Israeli prisoners.
At the same time, according to Yusuf, if Morer is ready to mediate in the negotiations on the prisoner exchange, they have something to talk about. Yusuf also said that Hamas was prepared to provide information about the Israelis within 48 hours after the release of militants arrested again after they were released in exchange for Gilad Shalit.
At the moment in the hands of Hamas, there are three civilians Abraham Abera Mengistu, Hisham al-Sayed Juma Ibrahim Abu Ganima, of which the first two suffer from mental disorder. In addition, Hamas is holding the bodies of two IDF soldiers – Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul killed in the counter-terrorist operation «Indestructible rock».
