Cleared for publication: Hadar Goldin a 'close relative' of Defense Minister Yaalon
It has been cleared for publication that Hadar Goldin, who was kidnapped in Gaza on Friday, was a 'close relative
' of Defense Minister Moshe Boogie Yaalon.
Hebrew media has yet to officially indicate how the two were related, but the Hebrew phrase - karov mishpaha - indicates an immediate or otherwise very close family relationship between the two.
The gag order was implemented on the family's request, so as to not
escalate the situation with Hamas in the event Goldin was alive and
being held captive.
The army also apparently found a body, because they are burying it today.
Goldin will be laid to rest at 5:30 pm Sunday in the military cemetery in Kfar Saba.
May the family be consoled among all mourners for Zion and Jerusalem, and may they know of no more sorrow.
