(New York, NY) -- Israel says no soldier has been taken captive by Hamas. Israel's UN Ambassador Ron Prosor said Sunday night the rumors of Hamas capturing an Israeli soldier are untrue. Prosor made the remarks as the UN Security Council was to hold an emergency meeting on the fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. Earlier Sunday, a spokesman for Hamas' armed wing claimed it had captured an Israeli soldier.
