Israel said negotiating for release of soldiers’ remains

Egyptian media says Israel is negotiating for the return of the bodies of IDF soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, who were pronounced killed-in-action but whose remains are in Gaza.

According to Hamas parliament member Mushir al-Masry, Hamas is interested in the deal, which would involve the release of Palestinian and Jordanian security detainees, Israel Radio reports.

The Turkish news agency reported that Israel would release 25 prisoners and the bodies of 18 terrorists in exchange for the two soldiers’ remains, and the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news agency reported Friday that the Palestinians offered them for 15 prisoners and eight Palestinian bodies.

There is no confirmation of these reports.
