Occupation intensifies efforts to find soldiers in Gaza

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, Gaza Strip –Israeli occupation intelligence has intensified efforts to find soldiers imprisoned in the Gaza Strip, security website said.

Two Israeli soldiers are being believed arrested by Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas military wing, in Gaza during the last Israeli massive offensive on the Gaza Strip.

Al-Majd website, Palestinian website specialised in security issues, revealed that the Israeli occupation had doubled the efforts to find its soldiers.

It said that the occupation is using several intelligence techniques and strategies to obtain information about the Israeli soldiers in Gaza.

Some of the strategies and techniques being used by the Israeli occupation, Al-Majd said, were used to search for the Israeli soldier imprisoned by Hamas in 2006.

However, this time, the Israeli occupation is putting more weight on technology and attempts to recruit senior Qassam fighters.

Al-Majd said the Israeli leadership is trying to push Hamas officials or members to say whether the two Israeli soldiers are dead or alive.

On Tuesday, the Israeli Hebrew newspaper Maariv said that the Commander of Israeli Givati Brigade Ofer Winter had stressed that Hadar Golden, one of the soldier lost in Gaza, was captured alive by Hamas fighters.

The Israeli offensive on Gaza killed more than 2,260 Palestinian citizens and wounded around 11,000 others in the space of 51 days.
