Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh is urging Palestinians to kidnap Israeli soldiers, in light of the recent halt in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, reported Palestinian Ma'an News Agency Tuesday night.

"Abducting Israeli soldiers is a top priority on the agenda of Hamas and the Palestinian resistance," Haniyeh reportedly said during a conference. "Negotiations with the occupation have failed."

According to the Palestinian news agency, the Gaza leader called the end of recent US backed peace talks an "unquestionable fact."
