NEW YORK – The parents of Lt. 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.
Danon said, “Hadar Goldin was killed during a cease-fire mediated by the international community, and the UN must take responsibility, and act against Hamas to return the bodies of Hadar and Oron to Israel for burial as soon as possible.”
