Leah Goldin: Israel must not cease fire without return of slain soldiers
Leah Goldin, the mother of slain soldier Hadar Goldin whose remains have been held by Hamas since 2014, says Israel must not agree to a ceasefire with Gaza that does not include the return of Goldin and a second slain soldier, Oron Shaul.
Leah Goldin accuses Israel’s leaders of deceiving and misleading the families for years while doing little to pressure Hamas to give back the bodies.
“Winning [this conflict] means bringing the boys back,” she says.
