A Hamas poster celebrating the Schalit deal. Photo: Tom Spender/Wiki Commons. – Hamas on Sunday threatened to abduct Israeli soldiers, showcasing two “prison cells” built especially for future Israeli captives.

The Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, held a rally in Rafah on Sunday, honoring three senior operatives, Muhammad Abu Shamalah, Raed al-Attar and Muhammad Barhoum, killed during Operation Protective Edge waged in the summer of 2014.

Hundreds of armed Hamas terrorists participated in the rally, where weapons and rockets were put on display, as were the jail cells. Both “cells” included Hebrew writing indicating they were intended “for enemy prisoners.”

He reiterated the brigade’s solidarity with “soldiers of the resistance,” families of terrorists, Jerusalem, and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
