BEIRUT: Spokesman, Moushir al-Masri, said Monday that Hamas would seek indirect talks with Israel to discuss prisoner exchanges after the current fighting ends, Al-Quds TV reported.
Masri warned that any information about Shaul Aaron, the Israeli soldier that Hamas said it captured Sunday, would have a price.
Late Sunday, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s armed wing, said it had captured an Israeli soldier.
More than a dozen Israeli soldiers have been killed since the Jewish state launched a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip Friday, after Hamas rejected an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire. Hamas has ruled out any cease-fire that it does not meet its list of demands, which includes the end of the blockade on Gaza and the return of Hamas prisoners arrested by Israeli.
