Marwan Barghouti being released? (update - no)

At this moment, Maan News (Arabic) has a "breaking news" story:
Occupation released Qassam Marwan Barghouti after 39 months and oblige him to house arrest
I don't see this reported anywhere else yet.

This may mean that a deal for Gilad Shalit is imminent.

Barghouti was of course convicted of five counts of murder in Israeli court.

UPDATE: It was his son, Qassam. I assumed that was a translation error.
