An Israeli soldier is presumed dead after he went missing in the Gaza Strip, according to local media. The reports come two days after the Islamist Hamas group announced they had captured a soldier during clashes.
Israel's Channel 10 News said the military believed the man was killed along with six other troops in an attack on an armoured vehicle on Sunday. However, the army has only identified six bodies. Hamas on Sunday announced it had captured an Israeli soldier, but did not say whether he was dead or alive.
Abu Ubaida, the spokesman of the Hamas's armed wing, said the soldier was seized in heavy fighting on the Gaza border on Sunday. He displayed a photo ID and army serial number of theman, but showed no image of him in their hands.
