Leah Goldin confronts Gantz at memorial ceremony for victims of 2014 war

The prime minister and defense minister are taking part in a memorial ceremony for the victims of the 2014 Gaza war.

Outside the ceremony, the family of soldier Hadar Goldin, whose body has been held by Hamas since the conflict, holds a protest calling on the government to do more to ensure his return.

Hamas is holding the bodies of Goldin and another soldier, Oron Shaul. It is also holding two live Israelis who entered the Strip of their own accord — Avraham Avera Mengistu and Hisham a-Sayed.

Meeting mother Leah Goldin, Gantz says, “I hope one day we’ll sort it out.” She answers: “No, not one day, now.” He says: “We are doing everything we can and we’ll continue to do so.”
