The head of the Merhavim Regional Council, Shai Hagigi, tonight (Motzei Shabbat) sent a letter of commiseration to the family of the kidnapped soldier Hadar Goldin.
"Dear Goldin family, in the name of the residents of the Merhavim Regional Council, I would like to express our complete support in any way needed that will return your son to you. Hadar went out on a mission -- to protect us. The IDF has a duty to bring him back safe and sound. Remain strong. The entire nation of Israel is praying for his safe return," the letter read.
