Hamas' armed wing said on Saturday it had no clear indication on Goldin's whereabouts and that he may have been killed during an ambush in the southern Gaza Strip in which two other Israeli soldiers were killed.

An Israeli soldier prays in front of a tank at a military staging area near the border with the Gaza Strip July 24, 2014. Israel won a partial reprieve from the economic pain of its Gaza war on Thursday with the lifting of a U.S. ban on commercial flights to Tel Aviv, as fighting pushed the Palestinian death toll over 700. A truce between the Jewish state and Hamas Palestinian fighters remained elusive despite intensive mediation bids. Palestinians said residents of two southern villages were trapped by days of tank shelling, with medics unable to evacuate wounded, and U.N. agencies said more than 140,000 people had been displaced. Hamas fired rockets at Tel Aviv and said its gunmen carried out a lethal ambush on Israeli soldiers in north Gaza.

Tens of thousands of mourners joined in an outpouring of national grief on Tuesday at the burial of three Israeli teenagers, Gil-Ad Shaer, U.S.-Israeli national Naftali Fraenkel, both 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19, whose kidnapping and killing Israel blamed on the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas. The Islamist group has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the disappearance of the students as they hitchhiked near a Jewish settlement on June 12 nor in the cross-border rocket salvoes from Gaza.

A Jewish man holds the Torah during morning prayer at a synagogue in Budapest December 3, 2012. It is only relatively recently that Hungary's Jews have celebrated their identity as openly as they did when Europe's largest synagogue was built in Budapest in the 1850s. Now they are determined not to allow a political climate in which they have to defend that identity or even suppress it. Although anti-Semitism has not yet led to serious physical confrontations, hate crimes have included desecration of Jewish cemeteries and a verbal attack in Budapest on 90-year-old former Chief Rabbi Schweitzer.
