Gaza group: We'll never reveal Shalit captivity terms

Popular Resistance Committees will never reveal imprisonment conditions of abducted soldier Gilad Shalit, group spokesman says; Hamas: Prisoners to remain top priority until release of last detainee

The Popular Resistance Committees, one of the Gaza group behind Gilad Shalit's abductions, will never reveal the Israeli soldier's imprisonment conditions, the group's spokesman said Friday evening.


Abu Mujahid's words contradict his own earlier statements. The PRC spokesman said Thursday that Shalit's captors will release a video documenting his time in captivity, after the prisoner exchange is completed.

"The video will show that he was treated well and with respect, as demanded by the Islamic dogma," he said at the time.


Meanwhile, senior Hamas figure Ismail Radwan also referred to the issue of Shalit captivity details and the possibility that Gaza groups would reveal where Shalit was held during his five years in captivity.


"We don't know about this issue, it's a security matter and the resistance would ultimately decide on this front," he said.


In an interview with Palestinian news agency Ma'an, Radwan said that while Hamas was satisfied with the prisoner swap, the group would continue its efforts to secure the release of all Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.


"The prisoner issue shall remind a top priority for Hamas and for the national and Islamic forces, until the last Palestinian prisoner is released," Radwan said.


Ma'an also reported that Hamas has already informed the families of prisoners from the northern Gaza Jabaliya refugee camp about their sons' release. A Hamas delegation that visited the families congratulated them on the upcoming release.
