The IDF spokesman announced early on Sunday morning that at 11:25 p.m.on Saturday, the Chief Rabbi of the IDF, Brigadier Gen. Rafi Peretz, declared the death of IDF officer, Lt. Hadar Goldin, who fell in the Gaza Strip on Friday.
The decision was made according to the findings of a special board, headed by the rabbi, who examined the details of the incident and related to medical, halachic and other relevant considerations.
The message was delivered to the family by the Head of Personnel, Major General Orna Barbibay and Chief Military Rabbi, Brigadier – Gen. Rafi Peretz.
Earlier, after the end of the Shabbat, Goldin’s parents expressed their shock at rumors that the IDF was beginning to withdraw from Gaza, and urged the government not to abandon their son.
“I am a Battalion Commander in the reserves, I performed reserves duty until I was 50. (IDF Chief of Staff) Benny Gantz was my commander and it cannot be that he gave an order to the IDF to leave when there is still a soldier inside (the Gaza Strip.)” said his father Dr. Simcha Goldin outside their family home in Kfar Saba near Tel Aviv.
