The IDF confirmed Friday that an Israeli soldier was feared kidnapped in Rafah in one of a range of gross Hamas breaches which caused the 72-hour truce imposed Friday at 8 p.m. to break down. Hamas official Mussa Abu Marzuk claimed in Cairo that “an Israeli officer was taken prisoner.” The family has been informed. A team of Israeli soldiers was clearing a terror tunnel Friday, when it came under heavy Hamas fire and a suicide terrorist jumped out of the tunnel and blew himself up.
