Kidnapped soldiers named

The two soldiers who were kidnapped in Lebanon yesterday have been named by the IDF. Contrary to a post I linked yesterday, neither of them is Druze - they are both apparently Jewish. According to the IDF, the soldiers are Ehud Goldwasser, 31, from Nahariya, and Eldad Regev, 26, from Kiryat Motzkin. I guess you all know now where Nahariya is and I think I mentioned Kiryat Motzkin - just north of Haifa - yesterday as well.

Update 4:46 PM

Al-Jazeera reports that
the soldiers were alive at the time of the kidnapping, according to a Hizbullah source.

They were moved to a nearby mosque immediately after the abduction, and were then forced to change clothes and were taken by taxi to another location.
