Family of Oron Shaul, killed in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, call on Israeli government to work to return their son to them, after his body was snatched by Hamas.
Over 2,000 hikers participated in the fifth annual Yavne’el March on Saturday morning, calling on the government to work to return IDF soldier Oron Shaul, who was killed during 2014’s Operation Protective Edge and whose body was snatched by Hamas.
Israelis from all over the country, particularly from northern Israel, as well as Shaul’s family members and soldiers from the Golani Brigade – where Shaul served – joined the march. Many wore T-shirts with Shaul’s photo and stickers calling for his return.
