Hamas claims it knows nothing about a kidnapped soldier (Goldin is British-born)Gal Berger, Israel Radio's Arab affairs correspondent. The twitter page is in Hebrew (with some occasional Arabic). But the tweets indicate that one Hamas higher-up after another claims not to know anything about a kidnapped IDF soldier.
The most definitive tweet is this one.
בכיר חמאס, מוסא אבו מרזוק, מקהיר: גם אם יתברר שיש חטוף - המשא ומתן עליו יהיה נפרד, במנותק משיחות ההסדרה בקהיר להפסקת אשTranslation: Moussa Abu Marzuk from Cairo: Even if it turns out that there is a hostage - the negotiations for him will be separate from the Cairo talks on a cease fire.

(Berger is also reporting that the 'Palestinians' will be in Cairo to negotiate tomorrow and the Israelis on Sunday).
By the way, Hadar Goldin was born in the UK.
Shabbat Shalom everyone.
