Observe here the characteristically jumbled, self-contradictory, overlapping lies produced by Bibi’s lamers: Hamas didn’t capture anyone, and if they did, then they weren’t Jews, and anyway they’re all dead, so Hamas is lying again – RB
Hamas shows photos of four missing IOF
DPA, Apr 1 2016
GAZA – Abu Obeida, spox for Hamas’ armed wing, the Ezz’ed-Din al-Qassam Brigades, in Gaza yesterday showed pictures of four IOF said to be missing in the Gaza Strip since 2014. He said in a statement on al-Aqsa TV that the group isn’t in contact with Israel about the missing soldiers. Covering his face with a red scarf and wearing a military uniform, he spoke in Arabic with a poster behind him featuring black-and-white photos of the four IOF. In the summer of 2014, Israel waged a large-scale military operation on the Gaza Strip that lasted for 50 days. The offensive left 2,200
Plastelinans Arabs and 70 Israelis Jews killed, while four IOF went missing. The spox said:
There is no contact with the occupation in relation to the missing soldiers in Gaza and we won’t give free information. Netanyahu lied to his people when he spoke about his prisoners.
Israel has repeatedly announced that the soldiers were killed during the military operation in 2014 and asked Hamas to return their corpses. Hamas didn’t say whether the four IOF are dead or alive. In 2010, Egypt brokered a prisoner swap deal between Israel and Hamas in which Israel released 1,028 male and female prisoners for the release of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was captured by Gaza resistance fighters in 2006.
Hamas admits it is holding two IOF hostages and two dead bodies
JNS.org, Apr 1 2016
Hamas on Friday admitted that it is holding two live IOF hostages and two bodies of dead IOF, while accusing Netanyahu of lying about their impending release. Hamas spox Abu Obeida said regarding reports that both sides are nearing a prisoner exchange deal:
Netanyahu is lying to his people and deceiving the families of the captive soldiers. There are no talks or negotiations relating to the prisoners. The enemy will not get information about the four without paying a clear price before and after the negotiations.
A report earlier this week in the UK-based
Arabic daily newspaper crock of shit Asharq al-Awsat said that international mediators were attempting to broker a swap. The deceased IOF held by Hamas are Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul. The two live captives are Avraham Mengistu, an Ethiopian Jew, and an unnamed Israeli Bedouin. They are both believed to have crossed into Gaza on their own before being captured.
‘We have four Israeli prisoners of war in our custody,’ Hamas says

Hamas publicly acknowledged on Friday that it is holding the remains of two IOF and also has in its custody two non-Jewish Israelis who went missing in the Gaza Strip. The group’s military wing, Izz’ed-Din Qassam Brigades, released a televised statement on Friday saying Israel will have to make concessions if it wants them to provide information about the conditions of the “four prisoners of war.” The Hamas spox assailed Netanyahu and denied that there were talks continuing on the release of the four Israelis, saying:
Netanyahu is lying to his people with his statements and he is pulling the wool over the eyes of the parents of the soldiers in our custody. There are no negotiations over prisoners.
Last year, reports in Arab language media indicated that Hamas made two key demands of Israel as a condition for their release. The first demand was for Israel to re-release the
Plastelinans Arabs that were freed in the Gilad Schalit prisoner exchange and then immediately rearrested, cos Israel are just double-crossing, dishonest cunts, which is not news. The second condition is that any talks between Israel and Hamas over a swap not be linked to any other issue that remains unresolved between the two parties. Goldin and Shaul were killed during the Gaza fighting in 2014. Their remains are presumably in Hamas hands in Gaza. One of the non-Jews, Avraham Mengistu, who has been described in press reports as “emotionally unstable,” wandered into Gaza in 2014 and has not been seen since. Mengistu was 29 when he disappeared and was suffering from severe depression. Israel’s Defense Ministry believes that Mengistu was held by Hamas after illegally crossing the border, but the Islamist movement governing Gaza has provided no information about his whereabouts or condition. The other missing Israeli national believed to be alive in Gaza is a Beduin from the Negev whose identity has yet to be revealed. A relative of the missing youth said last year:
He is mentally ill, and this is not the first time he’s gone missing. He crossed the border once to Jordan, once to Egypt and once to Gaza in Feb 2010, and on all three occasions he was returned to the family via COGAT (the Jewish ZOG authority in the OPT – RB). The fourth time he must have entered Gaza again, and he didn’t return. Nobody in the security forces shared information with the family on this incident. I hope that he is in Gaza again, and that he will come back to us in peace.
