GAZA, (Reuters) – The armed wing of the Hamas militant group on Thursday dismissed comment from President Mahmoud Abbas that a solution could be imminent to the case of a captured Israeli soldier.

“Nothing has changed in the case of the Israeli soldier,” said Abu Ubaida, official spokesman for the Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades.

“The file remains in the hands of the resistance factions and not in the hands of any politician even if that politician is Abu Mazen,” Ubaida said, using Abbas’s nickname.
