Hamas on Thursday condemned the imprisonment and capture of Palestinian engineer Dirar Abu Sisi, calling it a violation of international law.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zohi said that "[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu's statements are an attempt to hide the crime of kidnapping [Sisi] in the Ukraine and his illegal transfer to a Zionist prison."
"The kidnapping of Abu Sisi is an example of Israeli contempt for international law and the international community," Zohi said, while pleading for Ukrainian authorities "to act in order to release Abu Sisi from the Israeli prison."
The spokesman also echoed Abu Sisi's claims made in court earlier in the day that he is not connected to Hamas.
