Hamas Steps Up Kidnapping Of Israeli Soldiers, Ignores Jerusalem Retaliation

  • The Palestinian terrorist group has intensified its efforts to kidnap Israeli soldiers to use them as additional leverage in long-held prisoner exchange talks with Jerusalem, a report said on Tuesday.
  • Hamas is trying to step up kidnapping attempts as it’s growing desperate after the negotiations have been halted over the group’s demand to release Palestinian terrorists from Israeli prisons, Kan learned. The group is allegedly ready to face possible devastating response from Jerusalem to the kidnappings in hope of gaining extra bargaining chips to force Israel to meet its conditions and regain its fading support among Gazans.
