A Palestinian terrorist leader claims the biggest prisoner exchange deal ever with Israel will take place within the next few months.
Ahmed Jabril, who heads the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, said his organization is playing a key role, but it is too early to disclose the details.
Jabril was quoted in an interview published Tuesday in the international edition of the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Kabas, which appeared in London. Ha’aretz picked up the story and reported it in Israel on Thursday.
Jabril stressed that Israeli prisoners held by Hezbollah, the pro-Iranian fundamentalist group in Lebanon, would not be released unless his organization agreed.
