Elder of Ziyon kommenterar:
The reporter first notes that while the soldier is bloody, Akina doesn’t have a scratch on him. Akina simply answers that the soldiers were firing and he was merely defending himself.
He answers the question of whether he intended to kidnap the soldier with a strange denial:
“No, [he] was given to me to protect, save him and trade him.”
Seizing a person with the intent to bargain him to compel a state or group of people to do an act is the definition of hostage taking. And it is illegal under international conventions.
UPPDATERING: Det är oklart om kvinnan som översätter säger trade eller treat. Något som också är intressant är vad soldaten behöver skyddas ifrån.
