So what happened? The news was being reported in an Arab Maan news agency reported:
"A group of our resistance fighters captured an Israeli soldier near Ben-Gurion Airport and withdrew with the soldier without incident... We will provide details about the captured soldier later."
A female IDF soldier said she saw what appeared to be a soldier being pushed into a car and driven away. This too could have been staged. The Arabs have often gotten uniforms, even fake ones. Perhaps they made it look like a kidnapping.
So, if this was not a kidnapping, perhaps the resulting chaos was the idea. Traffic was jammed. Everyone was on alert. Everyone was on edge. Perhaps they want to create a boy who cried wolf atmosphere, or want to initiate a process where checkpoints and roadblocks go back up so the terrorists can say how Israel is oppressing them, or just simply mess with everyone's heads.
But all that matters right now is that it appears that everyone is safe, baruch HaShem. Let's hope it stays that way.
