At the beginning of the government meeting today (Sunday), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the new appointment of Yaron Blum as coordinator of POWs and MIAs. “I believe that he is the right person for this important task,” Netanyahu said.

“I decided to appoint Yaron Blum as the coordinator of POWs and MIAs in order to organize our efforts in bringing our boys home,” Netanyahu added. “I see it as a national mission, it’s personal. He was a member of the small team that dealt with the Gilad Shalit issue.”

Netanyahu also stated that he spoke with the families of currently missing IDF soldiers: “Prior to the appointment, I called the families, each and every one of them and I told them that I know. I remember them as parents, also as siblings and I remember the boys. I have no doubt that Yaron will make an important contribution to this holy cause.”
