Bardawil: kidnapping Palestinians in Sinai Egyptian “stab to Gaza”
Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, renewed its position of holding Egypt responsible for the safety of the four Palestinians abducted in Sinai a few days ago. It demanded immediate release of the kidnaped four.
The Hamas leader Salah al-Bardawil told Quds Press that the media attack which has been practiced by the Egyptian authorities is very far from reality and does not reduce the responsibility of Egypt for the Palestinian abducted men.
He held Egypt is to blame for the abduction of the four Palestinians since the kidnapping operation was carried out in Egypt, before the Egyptian security and in the security square of Rafah border crossing.
The Hamas leader opined that the abduction operation does not serve anybody but Israel, saying “it is a stab to Gaza at the time when relations between Gaza and Egypt are getting improved”.
Regarding relations between both sides, Bardawil said “the Egyptian side has been taking unilateral steps in this regard.
He said” we do not have any expectations in terms of the Egyptian threats of military intervention in Gaza made by some Egyptian media men”.
“Hamas is a liberation movement aims at resisting the Israeli occupation and has no hostility against any Arab country”, Bardawil said.
Unidentified armed men stopped, on Wednesday evening, a bus carrying on Palestinian passengers and kidnapped four of them. The passengers were coming from Rafah border crossing and heading to Cairo Airport.
