Israel’s chief prisoner negotiator said currently meeting with PM

Israel’s chief prisoner negotiator Yaron Blum is currently meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Haaretz political correspondent Chaim Levinson reports.

Further details are not immediately available.

Last week, Blum said on Saturday that Hamas refuses to adopt a realistic stance that would allow for real progress in talks for a possible prisoner swap.

The Palestinian terror group is believed to be holding the remains of Israeli soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, whose bodies were captured by the terror group when they were killed in the Strip during the 2014 Operation Protective Edge. The terror group also holds captive two Israeli citizens — Avraham Abera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed — who are all said to have entered the Gaza Strip of their own accord in 2014-2015.
