The late Hadar Goldin’s family contacted the Israeli Security Cabinet members, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, demanding that they appoint a new director for POWs and Missing Persons two months after Lior Lotan resigned from the position. They also demanded “to stipulate every Israeli gesture towards Palestinian reconciliation in advancing for the return of the soldiers and civilians.”

Prior to the Israeli Political-Security Cabinet meeting set to occur this afternoon (Monday), the parents of the late and missing in action IDF Lieutenant Hadar Goldin demanded that Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon immediately appoint a new director for POWs and Mising Persons, two months after Lior Lotan resigned from the position.

Goldin’s parents, Dr. Lea and Professor Simha, expressed to the two ministers a deep fear that the Israeli government is, in their own words, once again missing an opportunity to bring the two missing soldiers home. Furthermore, they demanded to stipulate every Israeli gesture towards Palestinian reconciliation in advancing for the return home of soldiers and civilians.

“The reconciliation deal between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas that was achieved by the international community opened a window of opportunity for a solution to bringing back Oron Shaul, Hadar Goldin and the civilians,” the parents said. “The Political-Security Cabinet must present strong and clear requirements regarding the matter of the soldiers and civilians and stipulate every gesture requested by the Palestinian Authority or the international community related to the reconciliation in advancing and finding a solution for the humanitarian subject of soldiers and civilians.
