Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel was actively seeking the return of two citizens who crossed into the Gaza Strip, and said Jerusalem holds Hamas responsible for the well-being.

“We are working to return the two Israelis who crossed the fence into Gaza. We hold Hamas responsible for their welfare, ” Said Netanyahu, “I have appointed a representative to coordinate all activity on the issue and to be in contact with the families. Yesterday I spoke with the parents and siblings of Avraham Mengistu and I told them that from as soon as the incident became known we have spared no effort to return him to Israel. We agreed to meet soon. I expect the international community, which expresses its concern over the humanitarian situation in Gaza, to issue a clear call for these citizens to be released and to see to their return.”
