Israeli military says all troops accounted for
Fri Aug 14,
JERUSALEM – The Israeli military says all troops are accounted for after investigating reports that a soldier had been abducted.
The military said Friday morning that no soldiers are missing.
A female soldier told police Thursday that she saw another soldier being forced into a car outside an army base. Police set up dozens of checkpoints on all roads leading to the West Bank, stopping and searching cars, causing long traffic jams across central Israel.
Israel already has one soldier being held captive. Sgt. Gilad Schalit was captured by Hamas-allied militants three years ago in a cross-border raid from Gaza. Schalit has not been seen since then, and the Red Cross has not been permitted to visit him.
