Hamas: Israel trying to 'cover up' failure by naming suspects

June 27, 2014 4:31 P.M. (Updated: June 28, 2014 9:50 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel is trying to "cover up" its failure to locate three missing Israeli youths by announcing names of suspects they believe are involved, Hamas said Friday.

Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that Israel is in a state of "confusion" and is trying to detract from its failure to make progress in finding the youths by naming suspects.

On Thursday, Israel named Marwan al-Qawasmeh, 29, and Amer Abu Eisha, 33, as the two main suspects behind the kidnapping of three Israeli youths on June 12.

Israel's Shin Bet said they had been jailed in the past for taking part in "terrorist activity on behalf of Hamas."

Speaking to Ma'an, Abu Eisha's father denied the allegations and said the family is worried that he has been detained and is being tortured by Israeli security forces.
