Israel says Hamas rejects prisoners swap

Two Israeli soldiers, Oron Shaul and Hadar Golding, are believed by the army to have been killed in Gaza during the 2014 warA senior Israeli official said Tuesday that Hamas has rejected an offer to swap the bodies of two Israeli soldiers for those of 19 Palestinians and almost as many prisoners. Lior Lotan, who is in charge of prisoners and missing persons, said the exchange was part of two offers turned down by Hamas, the Islamist movement that rules the Gaza Strip. Lotan said Israel had been holding since the 2014 Gaza war 18 Palestinians from the enclave as well as the bodies of 19 others and “offered to swap them for the bodies of the two Israeli soldiers”.
