The family of an¬†Israeli soldier captured by Hamas’ al-Qassam Brigades, during the 2014 Israeli military assault¬†on the Gaza Strip, Oron Shaul, confirmed that their son was¬†taken alive by Hamas, not “shreds”.
According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, Shaul’s brother stressed that the Israeli army does not know any details about what happened to¬†his brother, and that all the testimonies collected from soldiers who were present during¬†the battle of Al-Shuja’eyya¬†revealed that Sergeant Shaul was indeed captured alive.
Shaul’s family recently launched an electronic campaign calling for the restoration of the¬†captive son by¬†al-Qassam Brigades.
