Israel said still identifying a body among those retrieved along with remains of Zachary Baumel

In its operation to retrieve the remains of Zachary Baumel, Israel received nearly a dozen other bodies, Channel 13 reports.

Authorities have completed checking almost all of the bodies to confirm that they are not the remains of the other two Israeli soldiers missing since the 1982 Battle of Sultan Yacoub against the Syrian army during the First Lebanon War, Zvi Feldman and Yehuda Katz.

However, there is still one body that remains to be analyzed, Channel 13 reports.
