IDF Lt.-Col. Neri Areli, a 1948 researcher in the field of tracing missing persons, reveals that nine bodies of IDF soldiers are in Gaza and have not yet been brought to kvuras Yisrael.
In an interview with Radio 101.5, Barley said: “There are bodies in Gaza where the Gazan authorities know where they are buried, and there are bodies that witnesses in Gaza know where they are located. We currently have nine soldiers in Gaza”.
He said that during the period in which Israel was in Gaza, “this was not a top priority, and it was difficult for us to investigate”.
