Israel says missing soldier Hadar Goldin is dead
The Israeli military says a soldier reported missing in Gaza on Friday is dead.
Hadar Goldin was believed to have been captured by militants during fighting, leading to the collapse of a ceasefire shortly after it had been declared.
The Israel Defense Forces said it had determined that Lt Goldin, previously considered captured, had died.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has said the operation in Gaza will continue according to Israel's security needs.
