Hamas leaders to travel to Cairo to talk prisoner swap with Israel

Elior Levy|
A high-level Hamas delegation is set to meet with the top brass of Egypt's intelligence apparatus on Sunday as part of Cairo's ongoing efforts to negotiate a prisoner swap deal between the Gaza Strip terror group and Israel.
The delegation will be led by Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, who will arrive from Qatar, and Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar, who left for Egypt via the Rafah crossing.
A senior Gaza source told Ynet that the invitation is meant to levy pressure on Hamas to compromise on its demand that Israel releases "prisoners with blood on their hands" as part of a potential prisoner swap after Jerusalem rejected such a move outright.
