Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas has confirmed capturing an intruding Zionist soldier in the besieged Gaza Strip.

"The Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron is in the hands of the Qassam Brigades," a spokesman using the nom-de-guerre Abu Obeida said in a televised address late Sunday, as he announced that the soldier’s military number was 6092065.

The Brigades’ spokesman said that the Zionist enemy was not honest while talking about the number of the killed soldiers during the Israeli ground assault on Gaza.

“The shock of the operation had forced the enemy to announce some of its losses. However, the fact which the enemy has not announced yet, is the abduction of one of its soldiers,” Abu Obeida stated.

“If the enemy leadership could lie about the number of the killed and injured soldiers, it should now tell its people the fate of this Israeli soldier now,” al-Qassam Brigades' spokesman added.

The announcement comes after the Zionist regime announced the death of 13 occupation soldiers during the ground assault against Gaza.

This is while Palestinian resistance fighter insists that they have killed dozens of Israeli soldiers since they began their deadly attacks against the coastal sliver.

It also comes hours after the Zionist forces committed a brutal massacre against Palestinian civilians in Gaza’s Shujaiyya neighborhood, killing at least 80 people in the day 14 of the Israeli onslaught against the blockaded enclave.
