Hadar Goldin - who was killed during Operation Protective Edge in 2014, and whose body remains in Hamas hands in Gaza - met this Friday with US Assistant Secretary- General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet, in order to urge the UN to act for the return of the body of their son, as well as that of St.-Sgt. Oron Shaul, for burial in Israel.

Leah and Simcha Goldin were accompanied by Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon at the UN headquarters in New York.
