Liberman’s office denies he said he won’t return soldiers’ remains

Avigdor Liberman’s office denies to The Times of Israel that the defense minister said he didn’t see the bodies of two IDF soldiers being returned, but does confirm that the defense minister is against negotiations with Hamas.

“Despite the report in Channel 10, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman did not discuss the topic of returning the bodies of soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin today or in recent days,” his office says in a statement.

However, the office adds, “Minister Liberman has always been opposed to prisoner deals of the sort done until today. As a reminder, Minister Liberman voted against the Shalit deal.”
