The Goldin family on Sunday intensified its demand that the Israeli government prevent the entry of the body of a Hamas engineer who was killed in Malaysia to Gaza for burial.

Leah Goldin, mother of soldier Hadar Goldin, whose body is being held by Hamas in Gaza, explained in her 103 FM program that in the war between Israel and Hamas, the humanitarian issue has become a weapon in Hamas' hands. "This issue keeps me awake. The time has come to understand that we have a humanitarian war, when our enemy uses humanitarian tools against us and murders our spirit and morale. The state must show strength, not cowardice, and demand our soldiers. "

According to Goldin, Israel has the tools to prevent the entry of the body through Egypt as well. "The entry of the terrorist's body can be carried out through Israel or through Egypt, and since there are agreements between the two countries, I expect them to reach understandings and deal with the issue."

"If Hamas wants to transfer missiles at the Rafah crossing, Israel will stand on its hind legs and prevent it. The entry of the engineer's body is a humanitarian missile and we must stop it.”

Goldin said that their meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu was held in a difficult atmosphere: "We met with the prime minister after Passover and a message was issued that we met and that everything was fine, but everything was not fine. The meeting was very difficult because the prime minister is not putting pressure on Hamas, and they are dissolving our achievements at the UN Security Council. There is no such thing as ‘there’s nothing we can do.’ The lack of action is the abandonment of our soldiers in Gaza. We must activate all our humanitarian cannons and stop the entry of the body of the eliminated engineer."

"We will not be nice anymore," said Leah Goldin. "I call upon the people of Israel to register for the [activist group to return Hadar] “Order of Hadar” so that we can restore the values ​​to their rightful place, We will not leave soldiers behind. We are going to raise up the state in our own way and not in the Shalit family's way.”

“We will never give up.”
