IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
They should have done this a long time ago, but it is nice to finally see them being proactive in their attempts to find Shalit, and the other two Israelis being held by Hezbollah in violation of UN resolution 1701.
Palestinians report Israeli troops disguised as members of Hamas' security force kidnapped Muhawesh al-Kadi, senior member of group's military wing in Rafah. Sources say man involved in abduction of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.
Looks like turnabout is fair play punk.
A group of undercover Israeli soldiers disguised as Arabs on Friday kidnapped a senior Hamas member of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing, near the Rafah crossing in the Gaza Strip, Palestinians sources told Hamas' website.
Palestinian sources told Ynet that the man was apparently involved in the kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.
The sources said that the undercover soldiers entered the Gaza Strip, and carried out their operation near the Rafah Crossing. According to the sources, the undercover soldiers were disguised as grocers riding a donkey-pulled wagon. Sources said they disguised force even chatted with locals near the crossing.
Al-Kadi was working his land when the disguised force approached and kidnapped him. The Palestinian sources reported that the operation went quickly and smoothly. The undercover force left Rafah with al-Kadi, and brought him to Israel.
At first, Hamas blamed Fatah. They were even planning an attack to retaliate until they found out it was Israel.
This was a daring operation that stunned Hamas because of how far into Gaza the Israelis went.
Israel has been appeasing Hamas and Hezbollah since their last conflict died down. They keep releasing terrorist scumbags in order to get the Israelis (including Shalit) released, but none of the Israelis have been let go. There was even a protest in NY outside of the UN building to force them to secure Shalit's release. All to no avail.
I have long said that I believe Shalit is dead, but I hope I'm wrong. Israel will interrogate Al-Kadi, and they will get the info they need from him. Let the interrogation begin!
