Soldier Missing

Liraz Benvenisti

Liraz Benvenisti

IDF soldier Liraz Benvenisti, 20, on Tuesday evening left the base where he is serving, near the town of Gedera, and then disappeared. It is feared that he may have hitched a ride with Arab terrorists.

He is 5’7″, slim, brown eyes, short, black hair. He was last seen wearing IAF uniform and carrying a black handbag.

Last month, during Operation Pillar of Defense, Gaza terrorists announced they would be on the lookout for Israeli soldiers they could kidnap and use them in prisoner exchanges. IDF soldiers are regularly warned against hitchhiking.
