Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal denied Monday that his organization had any information about the kidnapping of three Israeli teens but he applauded the action to capture who he called the three "soldier- settlers."

"We don't have any information about the missing three soldier-settlers," Mashaal was quoted as saying by Palimes, a website aligned with the group.
