The IDF released for publication the name of the soldier feared abducted by terrorists in Gaza. The missing soldier has been named as Second Lieutenant (Platoon Leader) Hadar Goldin, 23, from Kfar Saba. Goldin serves in the Givati Brigade.
The IDF Spokesperson's office announced Friday that at about 9:30 am, terrorists opened fire on Israeli forces in southern Gaza, triggering a fierce exchange of fire, and preliminary information indicates that there is a concern that a soldier was kidnapped during the fighting.
Two other soldiers were reportedly killed in the same gunfight.
An investigation is underway and at this time, the IDF maintains a high-level operational and intelligence effort to locate the soldier.
"We are continuing our activities on the ground," IDF Spokesman Peter Lerner stated. "Our initial indications suggest a soldier has been abducted by terrorists in an incident where terrorists breached the ceasefire."
The soldier's family has been notified.
Heavy fighting broke out on the outskirts of Rafah shortly after the UN and US-brokered "humanitarian ceasefire" went into effect, after a group of terrorists allegedly emerged from a tunnel and began opening heavy fire at IDF forces stationed there.
At least one report, this time from Walla! News, says that a suicide bomber detonated himself directly next to IDF forces before the fighting began, wounding several soldiers.
Intense clashes ensued; according to Palestinian media sources, thirty people were killed, at least eight terrorists among them - though the number is likely to be higher, as Palestinian sources regularly report terrorist deaths as civilians. Roughly 100 others were wounded, according to reports.

>> “Our initial indications suggest a soldier has been abducted by terrorists in an incident where terrorists breached the ceasefire.”
Take the kid gloves OFF, Bibi. They are evil vermin. Do what must be done.
Hey Jews,Lucy and the football. look it up.
Patton would have ended this bs by now.
This must be why Ø and his podner JF’nK were not just asking, but DEMANDING a unilateral Israeli cease fire - to help Hamas abduct an Israeli. Ø and JF’nK want to have a bargaining chip, just like Hamas, to exchange 1000 or more terrorists for the soldier.
So they broke the cease fire and killed the two soldiers and captured the one?
Netanyahu to Kerry: Hamas bears responsibility for consequences of its actions
By HERB KEINON, REUTERS
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday afternoon that Israel would take all necessary measures against those calling for its destruction and using terror against its citizens.
Netanyahu’s conversation with Kerry came just hours after two IDF soldiers were killed, and one feared abducted, during an attack that took place an hour after the US and UN brokered cease-fire went into effect.
The Gaza Strip is only as big as Las Vegas, Nev. and is all but surrounded by Israel. Why can't Israel just go in and crush Hamas?
Why would anyone expect decency from evil. And the Muslims are evil.
