Fatah hands out candy to celebrate alleged "kidnapping" of Israeli soldier

The official Facebook page of Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party posted images from the Palestinian city of Tulkarem showing Fatah activists handing out candy to people in the street to celebrate the "kidnapping of the Israeli soldier" in Gaza. On July 21, 2014, Hamas disseminated the false claim that it had kidnapped a soldier - a claim that Israel soon refuted.

Alongside the images, the site administrator wrote:
"Fatah's Tulkarem branch hands out candy to residents in celebration of the kidnapping of the soldier by the Palestinian resistance on the blessed land of Gaza. Full freedom to all our brave prisoners."
