Israeli military spokesmen revealed Sunday that human bones were found in northern Israel two weeks ago and be those of a soldier who has been listed as “missing” since the war for Independence in 1948.
“The bones were transferred to investigators with the IDF’s missing persons branch. The identity of the bones is under investigation,” the IDF said in a statement to the Hebrew language Yediot Acharonot newspaper.
Six soldiers have been declared missing since 1948.
