Four years since Israel soldiers captured in Gaza

Days of Palestine -

It has been four years since Israeli occupation soldier Oron Shaul was captured during Israel’s attack on Gaza in 2014.

Shaul is being held as a prisoner of war by Izz Eddin Al-Qassam Brigades after he was captured in an ambush during the 51-day Israeli offensive on Gaza in 2014.

Al-Qassam later announced that it had captured four Israeli soldiers but provided no details of who they are or whether they were captured dead or alive.

Since the 51-day war came to an end the Brigades have refused to take part in indirect negotiations with the occupation in an effort to agree to a prisoner swap.

Israel announced that four of its soldiers had gone missing during ground assaults in Gaza during “Operation Protective Edge” in July 2014.
