Hamas Denies its Leader Called to Kidnap Israelis


Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri on Wednesday rejected claims made by Israel that Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal called last month to kidnap Israelis.

"Israel's claims that Mashaal gave an order to kidnap Israeli settlers are a continuation of its campaign pf lies to justify the Israeli plan to eradicate Hamas and undermine the hunger striking prisoners in jail, who are dying a slow death," said Abu Zuhri.
