Israeli Soldier Missing After Weekend Attack in Gaza

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:17:53 +0000

Hemera/Thinkstock(GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip) -- An Israeli soldier is missing following an attack on an armored vehicle in Gaza over the weekend that left six other soldiers dead, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, the IDF said Sgt. Oron Shaul, 21, of the Golani brigade, "is the soldier whose identification process is yet to be completed."

The combat soldier is now believed to be in the hands of Hamas, which triumphantly claimed that an Israeli soldier had been captured after Sunday's attack. The group did not say whether the soldier was dead or alive.
