Missing Israeli soldier Hadar Goldin declared dead

(JTA) — Hadar Goldin, the Israeli soldier who was thought to have been captured last Friday by Hamas, was declared dead.

The Israel Defense Forces announced early Sunday morning that it had determined that Goldin was killed in action. The determination was based on an analysis of what took place on the battlefield, a medical review, Jewish legal considerations and other considerations.

“A special IDF committee has determined that Lt. Hadar Goldin was killed in combat in Gaza on Friday,” the IDF Spokesman’s Office said. “We join Lt. Goldin’s family in mourning their loss and will continue to support them during the grieving period.”
