A Hamas official threatened the abduction of more Israeli soldiers. “We will abduct more soldiers if Israel does not release Palestinian prisoners,” Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas member, told supporters at a Gaza Strip rally over the weekend. Hamas was the main actor in a June 25 raid across the Gaza border in which two Israeli soldiers were killed and a third, Cpl. Gilad Shalit, captured.
