Hamas pride: Kidnappings only way to negotiate for prisoners

Al-Risala, Hamas, newspaper  |
“Hamas Spokesman Ayman Taha confirmed… that kidnapping soldiers would continue to be the only means to liberate prisoners… 'The Hamas approach has been based, since [the movement's] inception, on liberating prisoners through kidnapping soldiers and exchanging them for Palestinian prisoners.' He expressed his pride in the ability of the resistance to take captives and to maintain negotiations."
