Israeli soldier 'missing' since Sunday admits IDF

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier has been classified as "missing" since Sunday, Israeli media reported Tuesday, two days after Hamas' military wing announced the capture of a soldier.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz said that a soldier had been declared missing and "presumed dead" after Palestinian militants attacked an armored vehicle carrying seven soldiers in Gaza City on Sunday.

The Hamas-affiliated al-Qassam Brigades said on Sunday night that it had captured an Israeli soldier, the first since the release of Gilad Shalit in 2011.

Al-Qassam Brigades said during a speech by spokesman Abu Ubaida aired live on Ma'an News that the captured soldier is named Shaul Aron and his military number is 6092065. more
