Parents of IDF soldier Hadar Goldin stated that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu must turn his words into deeds.

Leah and Simcha Goldin, with their son Tzur, were present during Netanyahu's speech at the U.N. General assembly on Thursday.

"Netanyahu must turn words into action", Leah Goldin said, adding she expects him to "follow up on his commitment to us and the Shaul family."

The Shaul family is that of IDF soldier Oron Shaul who is thought to have been killed in the July 2014 battle of Shuja'iyya and his remains held by Hamas.

Hadar Goldin is thought to have been killed in July 2014 when Hamas violated a cease-fire agreement and attacked him and his fellow soldiers in Gaza. His remains are also being held by Hamas.

She said that they expect Netanyahu to act to ensure the "return of [our] sons will be a pre-condition to any international settlement in Gaza."
