The Prime Minister's Office on Saturday responded to criticism from the families of Lt. Hadar Goldin and St.-Sgt Oron Shaul, who have come out against a pending reconciliation deal with Turkey that does not include the return of their sons' bodies from Hamas captivity in Gaza.

"Israel is constantly working, through open and secret channels, to bring back home the two IDF soldiers and two Israeli citizens being held in Gaza," the PMO stated in reference to the Israelis missing in Gaza: Goldin, Shaul, Avera Mengistu and a Beduin citizen whose name has not been released.

"Israel will not cease these activities until the mission is accomplished," the statement added.
