Israel is holding Gazan engineer

Israel has admitted that it is holding Dirar Abu Sesi, the chief engineer of Gaza's power plant. Israel Radio reported on Tuesday morning that Abu Sesi is being held at Ashkelon's Shikma prison. Beyond that, there is a gag order on the case. Other reports have indicated that Abu Sesi was abducted from a train in the Ukraine where he had gone with his Ukrainian wife and six children to seek Ukrainian citizenship. This is from the first link.
Abu Sisi is the manager of the only power plant in the Gaza Strip. He is not known to have any direct ties with Hamas or other terrorist organizations, although it is likely that his senior position was the result of political affiliation.

In interviews to foreign reporters, Abu Sisi’s wife Veronika, blamed the kidnapping on the Mossad, claiming they did it to sabotage the Gazan power plant and that he was being held at the Shikma Prison in Ashkelon. She denied that he had any ties to Hamas.

Little is known about the circumstances surrounding Abu Sisi’s disappearance during a visit to Kiev with his family, but his sister Suzanne Abu Sisi, 45, told Reuters her brother had been abducted from a train in Ukraine last month, then taken to an Israeli prison.

“Friends there told us Dirar had been seized by six people who had abducted him from the train en route between Kharkhov and Kiev,” she told Reuters. “We know now that he is in prison in Israel, so they were the ones who abducted him. We do not know why they did it.”

Suzanne Abu Sisi, who lives in Gaza, said her brother had gone to Ukraine with his Ukrainian wife and six children to apply for citizenship there.
The Mossad does not go around kidnapping people for no reason. Think Mordechai Vanunu, another person who was kidnapped by the Mossad overseas. I am sure that there is much more that we don't know about this story than what we do know.

There are any number of possibilities but the most prominent theory is Abu Sisi in fact is a high ranking official in Hamas.

The Mossad does not abduct people abroad for no good reason. It probably had intelligence this guy was a high value target. And it managed to secure him without setting off a crisis in Ukraine-Israel relations.

I'm hoping that the mossad kidnaps anyone from Gaza that knows how to operation energy plants. Use them to swap with Gilad Shalit.

it is way past time that israel cease and desist with gag orders.

what sense does a gag order make when a prisoner is given phone rights and an atty?

now all the jew haters are allowed to speculate as to why sisi was arrested.

and no swaps for gilad

no more capitulation to terrorists
