Gaza Gunmen Kidnap Foreign Teachers

The militant terror faction Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on Wednesday kidnapped two foreign teachers at a private American school near Gaza City before releasing them eight hours later.

The Dutch principal and Australian teacher were abducted while driving to school this morning, but were freed after the PFLP demanded the release of its leaders, jailed in Jericho for murdering Israeli cabinet minister Rehavam Ze'evi in 2001.

Radical Palestinian militias have kidnapped foreigners in increasingly chaotic Gaza recently, usually as bargaining chips to get relatives released from Palestinian prisons, secure jobs from the Palestinian Authority or settle personal scores.
