 Israel: Soldier thought captured is dead
By: Associated Press
August 2, 2014 07:40 PM EDT

JERUSALEM — Israel's military has declared dead a soldier who was previously believed captured by Hamas gunmen in Gaza violence that shattered a temporary ceasefire.

The military announced early Sunday morning that 23-year-old Hadar Goldin of the Givati infantry brigade had been killed in battle on Friday.

Israel's defense minister, along with the chief military rabbi, met with the soldier's family at their home in the town of Kfar Saba.

Hundreds of well-wishers from around Israel gathered outside their home, praying and showing their support. There was an outpouring of grief among the crowd when the military's announcement was made public.

Not just "dead".  But killed in battle on Friday.

IDF does not do MIA. They do missing until confirmed killed. Any missing are assumed alive until proven otherwise.

Why don't the Israelis provide their troops a "black pill"?  It's not as if there isn't precedent in their history.  It is also a major-mindf*ck against the enemy.  The Knights Templar were known for their fight to the death, not be taking prisoner --strategy(I know that's not the correct word)--.  Supposed scared Saladin fecesless.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
