Hamas leader calls for kidnapping of Israel soldiers

Headline: “A member of the Hamas leadership called to capture new Israeli soldiers”
“Hamas movement leadership member Ismail Radwan demanded today, Monday [Dec. 5, 2016], that the military wings of the armed Palestinian factions capture Israeli soldiers in order to release the prisoners from the occupation’s prisons.
Radwan said: ‘The occupation responds to the capture of soldiers and courageous resistance. [Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam Brigades (i.e., Hamas' military wing) and Al-Quds Brigades (i.e., Islamic Jihad's military wing), a noble goal stands before you – to accelerate the release of our prisoners - and there is no option other than the option of the rifle.’
He added: ‘Capturing soldiers will force the occupation to meet the demands of the resistance and release our prisoners,’ and emphasized that the Palestinian factions have taken upon themselves to work toward the emptying of the prisons.”
