Mashaal threatens to kidnap more IDF soldiers

Hamas Damascus-based leader Khaled Mashaal threatened on Tuesday that Hamas would kidnap more IDF soldiers if Israel does not free all Palestinian prisoners. In an interview with Hamas radio station Voice of al Aksa, Mashaal added the kidnappers would stick to their demands. The Hamas leader-in-exile also called for an establishment of a Palestinian Authority unity government on the basis of the prisoners' document but stressed that such a government must not adhere to the demands of the international quartet.
