An Israeli officer was captured and two soldiers were killed ahead of the start of a 72-humanitarian cease-fire in the Gaza Strip Friday, senior Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouq said, rejecting Israeli claims that the group had violated the truce."There is no justification for Israel to violate the truce as the officer was captured and the two soldiers were killed ahead of the truce," Abu Marzouq told Anadolu Agency. He said that Palestinian factions were abiding by the truce and were only responding to Israeli "aggression".
