Islamic resistance Hamas movement on Friday accused Israel of abducting a Palestinian engineer who is a resident of the Gaza Strip, from Ukraine on Feb. 19 and moving him to one of its jails.

Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said in a press statement that Israeli intelligence kidnapped Derar Abu Sisi while he was in Ukraine and took him to one of its prisons.
“What happened is really an image of piracy practiced by the occupation (Israel). It is a crime that violates the international law and a violation of the Ukrainian jurisdiction,” said Abu Zuhri.
He held Israel “fully responsible for Sisi's safety and called on Israel to free him as immediately as possible. He also called on Ukraine to be responsible “for this serious crime that was committed on its territories.”
The Highest Commission for Refugees had accused Israel for holding Sisi, who had disappeared in Ukraine on Feb. 19.
Meanwhile, Israeli Ha'aretz Daily reported that the Israeli courts instructed not to publish anything about the details of arresting Sisi.
