Hamas leader: We have no connection kidnapping


Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashal told Turkish leaders that the terror group had nothing to do with the kidnapping of the three Israeli teens found dead Monday after being presumed kidnapped since June 12th, Arab-language Sky News reported.


He urged the Turkish leaders to intervene and halt Israeli aggression against Gaza Strip, which has seen numerous IAF air strikes in response to ongoing rocket and mortar fire at Israel. He said Hamas is not interested in an escalation and plans to respect the ceasefire agreement reached at the end of Operation Pillar of Defense. (Roi Kais)
