The families of kidnapped IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev said Tuesday that the state wasn't doing enough to bring their children home, Channel 2 reported. The families spoke at a press conference following a meeting with Defense Minister Amir Peretz. Earlier, the families met with IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz and Maj.-Gen. (res.) Doron Almog over faulty media reports that the patrol on which the kidnappings occurred had been ordered by Goldwasser and carried out "like [they were taking] a walk."
