Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni visited the family of Avera Mengistu at their home in the southern city on Thursday after news that Mengistu was feared to be in Hamas captivity was cleared for publication.

"The family is going through a very difficult time, after the double tragedy that they endured," Shimoni said. "Askelon Municipality's social services department has been accompanying them since the first moment."

"We embrace the family and send them strength and hope that Avraham will be back with his family quickly," Shimoni added.
