Report: Israel Agrees to Release Terrorists in Exchange for IDF Soldiers Killed in 2014


Israel has agreed to release a number of Hamas terrorists in exchange for the bodies of IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, who were killed in 2014, reports Kan News.

As per the report, the exact number of prisoners Israel is willing to release remains unknown. However, it has been disclosed that these prisoners include individuals who were previously freed under the 2011 Gilad Shalit Deal but were rearrested due to continued involvement in terrorist activities.

Hamas reportedly received the offer, but the terror group has not yet responded. The proposal is expected to be reintroduced for discussion once talks resume in Cairo in the coming days.

Goldin and Shaul were two Israeli soldiers who were killed in action during the 2014 conflict in Gaza, known as Operation Protective Edge.

Goldin’s death was particularly controversial because it occurred after a ceasefire had been announced, leading to international outcry and a significant search operation by the IDF. Goldin’s body was captured by Hamas, and his remains have been held in Gaza since.

Shaul was a staff sergeant in the IDF who also went missing during the 2014 conflict in Gaza. Hamas terrorists fired an anti-tank missile into his armored personnel carrier during a battle. Shaul was declared dead by the IDF, but like Goldin, his body was captured by Hamas and has been held in Gaza since then.
