Soldier ‘kidnapped’

20 Jul, 2014

The armed wing of Hamas says it has kidnapped an Israeli soldier, a tactic which the group has used in the past to secure the release of Palestinians imprisoned in Israel. Celebrations are reported in Gaza City and West Bank cities. A spokeswoman says the Israeli military is investigating the claim. An official identified as Abu Obeida:

The Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron is in the hands of the Qassam Brigades

Israel’s UN ambassador Ron Prosor says the rumors are untrue.
