Israel intensifies efforts to find soldiers held by Hamas

Israel has intensified efforts to search for its soldiers who were captured by Hamas during last summer’s Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, Palestinian newspaper Al-Resalah reported yesterday.

Al-Resalah reported Al-Majd, the Palestinian website specialised in security issues, reiterating that Israel is using several intelligence techniques and strategies to obtain information about the Israeli soldiers in Gaza.

Some of the strategies and techniques being used by the Israeli occupation were used to search for the Israeli soldiers imprisoned by Hamas in 2006. However, this time, Israel is putting weight on technology and attempts to recruit senior Hamas fighters.

Al-Majd said the Israeli leadership wants to know whether the two Israeli soldiers are and if they are dead or alive.
