Hundreds gathered for a mass prayer at the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem Thursday afternoon.

Participants prayed for the return of the remains of IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, who were killed while fighting Hamas terrorists in 2014.

Hamas has held the soldiers' remains in the Gaza Strip since August 2014.

It is also believed that three Israeli civilians are being held hostage by the Hamas terror group in Gaza.

The Hamas organization has refused to conduct negotiations with Israel for the release of either the soldiers' remains or the captive civilians, demanding Israel first free jailed terrorists as a precondition to any talks.
