Bring Oron Shaul back home!

Wednesday, August 10, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff

On the first day of Operation Tzuk Eitan in the Gaza Strip in 2014, Israeli soldier Oron Shaul was kidnapped by Hamas.

The company entered Gaza in an armored personnel carrier (APC) when the vehicle became incapacitated. Oron exited the APC to help fix the problem, along with his company commander and the company radioman.

The APC suffered a direct strike with an anti-tank rocket and all the soldiers were killed. Oron was abducted into a tunnel which the terrorists had used to execute their ambush. The company commander and radioman hid themselves during the skirmish and survived.
