Soldier Recounts Courageous One-Man Mission to Save Lt. Goldin

An IDF officer has recounted in detail the dramatic moments he pursued Hamas terrorists into a tunnel in a vain attempt to rescue Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, who was last seen being dragged away after an attack in which terrorists breached a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire.

"Lieutenant Eitan", who had got to know Goldin during their IDF officers' course and served in an elite unit of the Givati infantry brigade, told his story to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, which published it on his blog Friday.
