Now, Lebanese News is reporting that one of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers has died in captivity.
The Jerusalem Post and ROP reported:
One of the two Israeli reservists held by Hizbullah for more than a year has died and the other is still alive, the Lebanese daily newspaper an-Nahar reported Saturday.
An-Nahar quoted unnamed German diplomatic sources as saying officials in Berlin tried to obtain from Free Patriotic Movement leader Michael Aoun “some information” about Ehud Goldwasser, 31, and Eldad Regev, 26.
“Aoun refused to get involved in this issue. However, security agencies there understood that one of the two prisoners is still alive and the second had passed away,” the report said without further elaboration.
Speaking to The Jerusalem Post an Israeli government spokesman said, “the Israeli government doesn’t respond to reports made in the Lebanese media.”
