Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood hails Hezbollah capture of Israeli soldiers

BEIRUT (AFP) – The Palestinian ruling party Hamas and Egypt’s opposition Muslim Brotherhood have both congratulated Lebanese militant group Hezbollah on its capture of two Israeli soldiers.

“Hamas (whose military wing has also kidnaped an Israeli soldier) congratulates the leadership of Hezbollah, including Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and all his resistance (fighters), as well as the Palestinian people, the Arab and Muslim nations,” a Hamas statement said Wednesday.

“This operation which comes two weeks after the capture of an Israeli soldier in Gaza, shows the weakness of the Israeli army which boasts that it is an invincible army,” it said.

“Hezbollah’s opration proves again the complimentarity of the resistance against the Zionist entity, whether it is in Palestine or in Lebanon.”

Religion of Peace?

The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood also congratulated Hezbollah.

“I congratulate the Lebanese Islamic resistance which managed to capture two Zionist soldiers,” Mohammed Mehdi Akef said Wednesday.
