The family of an Israeli who is believed held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip says it was told a meeting set with Prime Minister Netanyahu had been canceled, even though the premier met with the families of two soldiers whose bodies are being held by the terror group.
“It turns out the postponement was just for us. What Netanyahu wouldn’t dare do to the Goldin and Shaul families he has no problem doing to us,” the Mengistu family is quoted saying by Channel 13 news.
Avera Avraham Mengistu, whose family has said he suffers from a mental illness, crossed into northern Gaza from Israel in September 2014. After he entered the coastal enclave, Hamas was thought to have arrested him.
