Hamas Finally Admits They Kidnapped The Three Israeli Teens
Remember how Hamas claimed they had nothing to do with kidnapping and murdering Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar (HY"D), three Israeli teens who were murdered in cold blood and whose bodies were shoved into a hole in Hebron?
Well, today the Jerusalem Post is reporting that Salah al-Aruri, a senior Hamas official, praised the "heroic action of the Kassam Brigades who kidnapped three settlers in Hebron," at a conference of Islamic clerics in Turkey on Wednesday.
This action, “the kidnapping to Hebron of the three settlers,” was an “operation spoken of far and wide,” al-Arouri added.
This is the first public admission by Hamas of something Israel knew anyway after interrogating Hussam Qawasme, who led and masterminded the attack following approval by Hamas' military wing.Marwan Qawasme and Amer Abu Aysaha who were also part of the attack are still at large.
Al-Aruri heads Hamas' overseas organization. He's based in Turkey and was Qawasme's contact who passed on money and weaponry and gave the final approval for the operation.
