Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades, Fatah's military wing, praised the kidnapping in the north. Abu Oudai, one Al-Aqsa's leaders, told ynet that "this is a heroic operation, we bless and thank the Lebanese resistance for such a great achievement."
"This heroic action returned the smiles to our faces and joy to the hearts of the Palestinian nation, especially those being massacred by Israel in Gaza. We are proud of our Lebanese brothers, and thank them for the joy they have given us." (Ali Waked)
